Abstract As a 'genre of history' in Australia environmental history is relatively new, emerging in the 1960s and 70s from encounters between history, geography and the natural sciences in the context of growing environmental concern and activism. Interdisciplinary in orientation, the field also exhibited an unusually high level of engagement with current environmental issues and organisations. In this era of national research priorities and debates about the role and purpose of university-based research, it therefore seemed fair to ask: 'can environmental history save the world?' In response, a panel of new and established researchers offer their perspectives on issues of relevance and utility within this diverse and dynamic genre.
