Farewell the fabulous Kulja

Kulja Coulston leaves Sanctuary after more than three years as managing editor.

After almost three and a half years at the helm of Sanctuary magazine, we bid farewell to managing editor Kulja Coulston who departs the role at the end of June 2019 to take up a position with ClimateWorks Australia.

“We thank Kulja for the significant contribution she’s made as editor of Sanctuary, and the commitment and passion she’s brought to the role,” says Renew CEO Donna Luckman.

“We wish her all the best in her new position, where she’ll continue working to support Australia’s transition to a net zero emissions economy.”

Since her appointment as editor in 2016, Kulja has produced 13 issues of Sanctuary. On her watch, newsstand and subscription audiences have grown strongly and the online magazine is reaching new audiences internationally.

“It’s been a huge privilege to tell stories about those people around Australia and New Zealand who are building the homes we need for the future,” says Kulja.

“Sanctuary’s continued success over more than 10 years reflects the real community need for independent information about how we can each achieve our sustainability goals.

“I’ve had so much fun working with the amazing team at Renew and the thousands of members who support us every day. I’ve been an active member for almost 20 years myself, and look forward to continuing to be part of what is a truly unique organisation.”

Kulja’s last magazine as editor is due to arrive in member letter boxes and on newsstands at the end of May and focuses on sustainable materials innovation.
