Green Week: a chance to think about sustainability

rtaImage-8As UAL gears up for the 2014 Green Week (10 – 14 February), this is a great time to highlight the work that colleagues at CLTAD and SEE are doing to support sustainability in the curriculum. Here are some highlights:

Sustainability in the Curriculum
Staff at University of the Arts London are invited to submit applications for funding up to £3000 to support small-scale projects that will develop sustainability and environmental awareness in the curriculum. For more information visit our Sustainability in the Curriculum page.

UAL Sustainability Awards
The UAL Sustainability Award recognises and rewards individuals and course teams that model the University’s commitment to create a culture of social and environmental awareness and who demonstrate a substantial and significant positive impact upon the student. Find out more on the UAL Sustainability blog

Education for Sustainability unit
As part of the MA Academic Practice, CLTAD offers staff a 20 credit unit that addresses the complex and problematic area of sustainability in Higher Education. Participants on this unit reflect on sustainability issues in their current teaching practice and develop a sustainability workshop to be delivered to a wider audience of University staff. Find out more on our Units of Study page.

Debates in Enterprise and Sustainability
A debate series held on 15 May 2013 addressed the question of how our graduates might contribute to creating a more sustainable future. The debate provided a space for exploring the links between enterprise and sustainability and its relationship to art and design. Find out more on the Debates in Enterprise and Sustainability website.
