2019: GLADHE Symposium @ EMERGENCE

Environmental and Social Sustainability in the Curriculum.
How do we protect, develop and innovate sustainable practices within Art & Design Higher Education pedagogies?
London College of Communication, UAL
Mon 16 September 2019, 10.00-16.15

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 & design schools in taking forward the sustainability agenda.

This GLAD symposium forms part of London College of Communication Design School's exhibition and events programme called Emergence featuring projects for service design, social innovation and sustainable futures and takes place during the London Design Festival.
