New Category for Environment - naming competition

Hello to all,

There are a number of everyday topics that connect us directly with our environment. We are about to create a new category to bring these together. With room for some new ones when relevant.

We often discuss and share how daily consumer choices make for a better environment. These include some existing topics from improving recycling to reducing our personal household carbon footprints. Climate change is also part of our everyday lives.

As a category we might also capture what as consumers we do at home, in our backyards or even going to the footy (when it resumes) to lessen the impacts of climate change.

A goal is to encourage more constructive discussion that is consumer connected.

What should we call the new category?

As always all are welcome to leave suggestions. Simply reply to this post.

EcoSphere or variations thereof (eg stand-alone, Our EcoSphere, etc)

Planet Earth

I like the short and to the point ‘Environment’ (re @person)

I’d like to concur - ‘Environment’ or something that includes the name or a variant - keep it simple :wink:

Otherwise something related to ‘earth habitat’ or similar, ‘home planet’ …

I had not heard of Giaanomics previously, the word just popped into my head.

I have only just scanned the article, but is seems interesting thank you. Now the Gaianomics term seems even more approprate to your original request.

Some of us know exactly what you are saying.

That’s the problem with being succinct. :wink:

@mark_m In line with Covid 19 why don’t we just call it Topic No. 33. Got as much chance of being read as the other 32 current topics.
