About ECOS

Since 1974, ECOS has reported on sustainability issues from a scientific perspective for Australia’s national scientific research agency, CSIRO.

Through well-researched features and news updates on current issues and relevant research, ECOS serves as a forum for:

  • Invigorating discussion on sustainability
  • Raising awareness of ecological principles, and
  • Explaining the challenges and benefits of good sustainable development.

Accessing ECOS

In 2011, the magazine moved to an online only format to reach broader national and international community of interest. All content is freely accessible.

In 2015, ECOS moved to this blog format.
