Whole Earth? satellite exhibition
WHOLE EARTH? exhibition is based on the premise that the future belongs to today’s young people and that students and universities everywhere can play a major role in making society more sustainable. The exhibition provides the kind of evidence students need to join the debate about their future. Read more about Whole Earth? on these pages in an article from Mark Edwards the exhibitions’ creator. But it’s not prescriptive – it’s an invitation to students and their tutors to articulate the kind of world they want to live in, and, through Students Organising for Sustainability bring them together to show political and business leaders support to take the difficult long-term decisions that underpin security for all.
Exhibited at The Hive in October and coming onto the University of Worcester St John’s campus in January 2016 it has already caught the imagination of Worcester residents, school children and university students.
A photographic response and local view of sustainability is showing at Worcester Arts Workshop in Samsome Walk, Worcester from Tuesday 3rd November to Monday 30th November. Local photographers along with young volunteers from Worcester Roots Foundation are showing pictures which explore sustainability initiatives implemented in the Midlands.
