Welcome to the Centre for Responsible Citizenship and Sustainability
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'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.
On April 2nd, Honorary Postdoctoral Associate and CRCS member, Neville Ellis, presented at TEDx Bunbury. The TEDx event was organised around the theme of ‘eudaimonia’, a term developed by Aristotle that broadly describes a state of ‘human flourishing’. Neville’s presentation entitled “How to Flourish on a Sick Planet” explored how our mental wellbeing is interconnected with the health and vigour of our home environments, as well as that of the planet as a whole. Drawing upon concepts such as ‘solastalgia’, ‘topophilia’ and ‘eutierria’, Neville introduces his audience to an emerging language that begins to give voice to the often overlooked but powerful emotional and psychological states produced by our interactions with our cherished home places.
