Get involved with Sustainability at RMIT.

RMIT is committed to the practice of incorporating sustainability principles and practices into learning and teaching, research and operational activities. We recognise that as a higher education provider we are responsible for shaping future leaders. Our graduate attributes underpin all aspects of learning and teaching; ensuring students leave not only work ready, but also socially and environmentally conscious. We aim to provide students with adequate opportunities outside of the classroom to engage in sustainable practices.

How to get involved

  • If you would like to better understand how sustainability relates to your program and gain valuable leadership experience that is recognised on your academic transcript how about joining our Sustainability Ambassador Program?
  • If you have a great idea that addresses a sustainability related issue perhaps you should check out our Green Innovators Competition.
  • Students are encouraged to cycle to campus; cycling is beneficial for health, environmental and financial reasons. A number of secure bike storage facilities have been installed as part of RMIT’s commitment to lowering carbon emissions and our Integrated Sustainable Transport Plan. Most notably is the City Campus’ Bike Hub (Building 51) with excellent change facilities and servicing facilities. To register for access to our bike facilities click here.
