DescriptionJoin GLAD, the Group for Learning in Art & Design, for a symposium exploring how we can protect, develop and innovate sustainable practices within Art and Design Higher Education pedagogies. The next generation of university Art, Design and Media students are not just in the nation’s classrooms, but also out on the streets – proclaiming a climate emergency, marching in Extinction Rebellion protests, articulating their concerns with commendable clarity and urgency in the media. As this generation arrives in our universities, how does the curriculum which we offer reflect their concerns and passions? What are we doing to help them use their creative skills to find answers to the global environmental and social challenges of our times? Join us for a day of debate about the role of art and design schools in taking forward the sustainability agenda. This event is part of ‘Emergence’, an exhibition and events programme presented by the Design School at London College of Communication, UAL exploring what design can do to achieve goals of sustainable production and consumption, biodiversity, inclusiveness, social cohesion and environmental sustainability.
