Student Sustainability Journal for the 21st Century
GLOBUS is a student-run online publication at the School for Cross-Faculty Studies, University of Warwick. Founded in early 2015 by staff from the School, GLOBUS was taken over by students from the Global Sustainable Development degree programme following the launch of the groundbreaking course in September 2016. You can read more about our links and the department itself here.
Our central theme underpins all of our futures: sustainability. Whether through the expansive lens of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals or through our own mind’s eye, we believe that sustainability as a state of mind holds the key to many of the 21st Century’s most critical challenges: climate change, global inequality, and ‘post-truth’ politics, to name just a few. Here at GLOBUS, we provide a platform and a network for our team to explore all aspects of sustainability, spanning social, economic, and environmental topics, and we pride ourselves on the infinite geographies of our work: from the national issue of ‘Trumpism’ in the US, up to the global threat of climate change denial, and down to the ways in which student houses can be made more sustainable, no question is too big, and no challenge is too small.
Our discourse is student-led, with diversity as a fundamental value: not only of race, religion, or gender, but of discipline and style, too – from in depth and thought provoking discussion pieces, to our two specialist series (Sixty Second Sustainability and Sustainable Student Living), which both aim to make sustainability relatable and accessible to our main audience: students.
