Green Agenda

Green Agenda is an online publishing project that aims to stimulate public discussion and debate, deepening understanding of critical and contemporary ecological politics and thought. It is a project of the Green Institute, focussing on publishing essays and interviews that explore the challenges of our time and present creative progressive ideas for the future of Australia and the world.

Green thinking is responsive to the challenges of our contemporary world and is underpinned by the beliefs found in the four pillars of the green movement around the world: ecological sustainability, social and economic justice, peace and nonviolence and participatory democracy.

The primary content on Green Agenda is long-form essays, although the editor welcomes content exploring themes and topics relevant to green thinking through other mediums such as interviews, visual projects and other creative content.

Who can contribute?

Green Agenda welcomes contributions from writers, academics, scholar-activists, organisers and citizens who share an interest in exploring ideas that are consistent with progressive and green thinking and its contemporary relevance.
