Students of Sustainability (SoS) is the largest student-run environment based conference in Australia. The conference began in Canberra in 1991 under the name 'Students, Science and Sustainability'. Each year SoS offers an amazing opportunity for students, activists, academics, environment and Indigenous groups, and members of the wider community from around Australia to come together to share and gain knowledge, skills and information on environmental and social justice issues. Featuring a vast array of inspiring speakers, practical workshops, field trips and empowering activities, SoS is the most important event of the year for environment concerned citizens and people wishing to learn more about how to create positive social change in their communities.
