National Strategy for Just Adaptation 

"The Strategy aims to create a blueprint for how decision makers, local, state, and federal governments, community leaders, Indigenous community and cultural organisations, nongovernment organisations, advocacy groups, and political leaders from across the spectrum can embed a justice framework in their climate change work."

What we do

Our publications and other outputs influence national discussions on issues relevant to sustainability.

We host and support events that connect people and organisations with diverse backgrounds and sectoral origins to create new opportunities for innovation.

We convene collaborations across sectors, knowledge, and expertise to advance a national sustainability agenda with actionable steps, in the areas defining Australia’s future. We do this through our thematic initiatives.

Our Early Career Researcher and Practitioner Program supports the emerging community of sustainability professionals, researchers, and organisers across the nation to build cross-sectoral networks and skills to tackle sustainability challenges.
