Webinar Series to Celebrate 10 Years of RCE London: Sustainability and Beyond

Thursday, September 30, 2021 to Thursday, February 24, 2022
Event Place: 

RCE London is marking its 10th milestone year with a webinar series entitled 'Sustainability and Beyond' with the emphasis on an eclectic mix of themes around the Sustainable Development Goals. Each webinar will be presented virtually by members of RCE London with a range of inspiring speakers, with time for discussion and questions. The series Chair is Ros Wade, Emeritus Professor, LSBU and Chair of RCE London. The series is hosted by London South Bank University. Registrants will receive the joining instructions three days before each webinar takes place. Details of the series are available here

The series starts on 30 September, 2021 with the first webinar, 'Art, Nature and Sustainability'. During this event, Hugh Atkinson will look at the world of nature and sustainability through the eyes of visual artists. Van Gogh got it right when he argued that artists understand nature and love it and teach us to see it. Supporting nature and promoting a more sustainable world are complex challenges which mere words cannot totally capture in the way that art can. The session will start with a presentation of 22 works of art beginning with El Greco and ending with Anish Kapoor’s Sky Mirror. The aim is to make us think about our understanding of how we see nature, but that it is also about fun and enjoyment. Register here.
