PLAN Application

We are pleased that you are interested in joining our network!

The application form varies depending on the role you envision for yourself within PLAN. Links below lead to application forms for the corresponding roles.

Become a Subscriber: Subscribers will receive occasional updates about PLAN activities, available resources, and cool opportunities related to living within planetary limits.

Become a Member: Members receive the same updates as Subscribers, can participate in network discussions on the PLAN forum, and have access to the PLAN membership directory and profiles. These profiles are intended to serve as a powerful means of finding and connecting with new collaborators.

Members must be actively researching, writing, or producing some form of scholarly output, whether in academia or related sectors, although there is no specific expectation that Members will have already published work in PLAN-related topics.

Become a Collaborator: Members may choose to upgrade to Collaborator status, which gives them full access to PLAN website functions (generating site content, search tool for site profiles, access to member contact information). Collaborators are expected to be active scholars who are looking to co-create new knowledge in PLAN-related areas leading to publication. To upgrade your status you must complete the site profile detailing your level of concern about various global challenges and the skills that you bring to the study of these topics. When your profile is complete, send an email to plan.limits at to request an upgrade.
