Making sense of sustainability by promoting environmental futures dialogue: an arts and social sciences collaboration

15 March 2013

Can social scientists, arts scholars and artists work together to develop creative and imaginative strategies to address some of the major environmental risks that face us in the 21st Century?  

Is it possible to develop cross-disciplinary ways of working to promote ideas about ways of making possible the changes that are necessary in order to deal with the risks and uncertainties involved for people and their communities, and the rapid pace of change in human-ecological relationships? Can artists and social scientists envisage possibilities for living with the environmental transformations that are already under way, and to help promote ways of creating more sustainable lives, places and futures?

Cardiff University and Aberystwyth University are embarking on a new initiative on the theme of "Making sense of sustainability". The aim is to build a new social science-arts network within Wales and beyond that will directly address such questions.
