The Site is being developed by the Plymouth College of Art and is therefore, initially at least, most useful to practitioners and academics working within Art & Design. However, the concept and potential of the Site is for use across as broad a selection of academic studies and industries as possible; the site will develop over time in this respect.


Click on Case Studies to see examples of initiatives to embed sustainability in Art & Design curricula, or see the case studies sections within specific subject areas.
