We are working to create our first-ever zine, "Learning from those around us", an independent publication exploring themes of community, reciprocity, and storytelling. Through this zine, we hope to celebrate a year in intersectional sustainability work, celebrate the ongoing work of CSF funded project teams, and amplify the words and work of our community members. "Learning from those around us" will be published as both a digital and printed version as we explore the ways in which creativity is embedded within sustainability work.

The stories we share with one another and the art we create are extensions of ourselves, our communities, and collective lived experiences. As our community, we invite you to share your creativity, thoughts, and stories with us. 

Open to the UW community: Submit either visual or written work exploring your response to any of the following questions.

  • What does sustainability mean to you?
  • How do you define your connection to nature?
  • What does an environmentalist look like?

Written prompt: write a short letter, story, poem, or quote that explores these themes 

Visual prompt: send us artwork that speaks to a story you'd like to share with us

Submit via this google form by August 27, 2023 at 11:59pm for your work to be considered. We will be reaching out during the week of August 28 with the next steps if your work is selected. Work that has been previously made and/or previously submitted is welcome.
