About Us

Footprint Magazine publishes solutions-focused journalism tackling the future of our planet.

Whether through school strikes, lifestyle choices or political campaigning, many of us are keen on doing something about the climate crisis.

But, sadly, so much of the news around this topic can leave us feeling powerless and so many of the solutions seem out of our control.

At Footprint, we want to provide a platform that showcases fresh thinking about the environment in an accessible and realistic way.

We won't assume that you have a background in climate science or that you are of a particular political persuasion.

We simply hope that you will want to learn about the positive developments that are out there and feel empowered take some action yourself.

We will be writing about human ecology, scientific innovations, sustainable economics, green policies and more. If you are interested in writing for us, our pitching guide is here (we pay).

Footprint Magazine is edited by Dayna McAlpine and Jack Apollo George. The project director is Russell Merryman.

We are funded by the Journalists Action Network, a new non-profit organisation dedicated to encouraging solutions-focused journalism. The network has already launched another site, the Covid Action Network.

We are a partner member of Covering Climate Now, a global journalism initiative committed to more and better coverage of the defining story of our time.

We used to be called the Sustainability Action Network.
