Greenwich Sustainability Hub Launches ‘Whole Earth?’ Exhibition to Showcase the Importance of Sustainability in the Curriculum

The Sustainability Hub at the University of Greenwich is bringing the Whole Earth? Exhibition on campus – as a quest to align human and natural systems. Whole Earth? is based upon the premise that students and universities can help lead society towards a more sustainable future. The exhibition addresses the many challenges we face when trying to tackle the world’s most pressing issues – from climate change to poverty, to refugees, to overpopulation, to food and energy security, to water and soil restoration, to biodiversity and human and indigenous rights. The exhibition shows a combination of photography and pieces of writing which provide evidence and promote bespoke University Challenges tailored to different programs of study to solve. The idea is that whatever the area of study – from engineering to fashion, from science to finance – there is a place for everyone to contribute to the debate and bring about solutions and action on these critical issues in the context of their studies or research. The exhibition is the sequel to the critically acclaimed ‘Hard Rain’ project, which has been viewed on every continent by over 15 million people in galleries in cites, many universities, and the United Nations Headquarters.

The exhibition will be displayed at the Heritage Gallery in Queen Anne Building on Greenwich campus from 24th September to 14th October. The launch event on September 24th at 4pm will feature a keynote speech from renowned photographer Mark Edwards. Limited free tickets to the launch are available at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/whole-earth-launch-tickets-18187609630

Eye4Change: In/Sight

The In/Sight exhibition is the result of a series of photography workshops for young people aged 12-17 in Woolwich. These workshops provided an opportunity to learn and apply a range of creative and technical digital photography skills, supported personal development and gave voice to each lived experience.

The camera has been central to young people’s engagement in the project, documenting aspects of their neighborhood and enhancing their sense of identity and belonging. Each now has a visual and practical sense of how they can turn their ideas into reality, taking ownership of the goals they have and how they can achieve them independently.

The project was facilitated by Eye4Change, a charitable organisation, using the medium of photography to engage, educate, and empower children and young people of all abilities to raise aspiration, maximise wellbeing, and increase engagement in positive activities.

Landscapes of Fishing

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

The Landscapes of Fishing is a stunning collection of images by internationally renowned photo-journalist Vince Bevan. The photographs portray the richness and diversity of inshore fishing in the four countries bordering the Southern North Sea and the English Channel: France, England, Belgium and the Netherlands. These photographs offer a poignant reminder of an industry struggling to survive against a backdrop of strict regulation and quota restrictions. Regardless of all its current challenges, this historic profession continues to contribute to the character and identity of coastal communities across Europe, for the benefit of residents and tourists alike. This collection of photographs have been exhibited at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall (UK), the Oostende Library (Belgium) and De Drvkkery (Netherlands) in 2014.

The exhibition was put together as part of the GIFS project (Geography of Inshore Fishing and Sustainability) and co-funded by INTERREG IVA 2 Seas project.
