Our speakers are experts in helping individuals and organisations see a wealth of positive opportunities for a new future world. John Thackara (Doors of Perception), Alison Tickell (Julie’s Bicycle) and Howard Jones (Eden Project) tell their stories of their varied activities and their engagement with the creative world.

Sustain Talks is a series of debates with leading thinkers and doers from across the art and design disciplines. The aim of the lectures is to inspire and challenge students to embrace and address sustainability in their work, providing a forum for honest discussions about the complexities and opportunities of sustainable practice in art and design. Each Sustain Talk is opened by a recent graduate speaker whose work has a strong sustainability theme, giving a boost to our students and their ideas.
