Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability


Welcome to the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability

The Centre

The Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability provides a platform for collaborative, inter-disciplinary work across the School of Business and Governance, all schools within Murdoch University and outside institutions. The Centre seeks to advance teaching and research in areas that are at the heart of key global challenges and relevant to future university graduates and society at large.

The Centre's objectives are to:

  • be an outward-facing and socially relevant organisation that engages with the communities it wishes to serve;
  • engage in high quality teaching and research to shape new thinking and practice on key aspects of responsible citizenship and sustainability; and
  • create an environment that is conducive to collaboration and promotes the development of research students and early career scholars.

NowHere: The Decisive Moment (Opening Night)

Wed, 20 February 2019 | 6.00pm - 9.30pm - The National Hotel, Fremantle, WA

Welcome to 2019.
Time for change.

Humanity has pushed the earth into an entirely new geological epoch called the Anthropocene. If we are geological agents with the power to shape the evolution of all life on Earth for millions of years into the future, then how should we think, feel and act in this decisive moment?

Come travel through deep geological time, all the way to the rooftop.

Get a view of where we are at Now,
and a glimpse of where to from Here.


Photographic exhibition and public lectures confronting the Anthropocene
by Gwenaël Velge & Dr. Neville Ellis

Opening guest speaker: Prof. Carmen Lawrence 7pm

Nibbles and finger food provided


CRCS Summer Writing Retreat

Each year the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability hosts a summer Writing Retreat to foster a supportive culture of writing. The sequestered time allows us to engage more deeply with our emergent writing in ways that will sustain our writing and help to bring discrete writing projects to fruition.
