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 the environment and sustainability
- raising awareness of ecological principles, and
- explaining the challenges and benefits of good sustainable development.
ECOS is widely read in the workplace, government departments, universities, schools, libraries and environment centres around Australia.
In 2011, after 37 years, the magazine moved to an online only format extending its reach to a broader national and international community of interest. All content is freely accessible.
In 2015, ECOS moved to this blog format.
