Sustainability in Creative Industries– Perspectives from the field of education in design and business
The creative industries in particular represent consumption practices and production processes that significantly harm the world that we inhabit as human beings. How do we bring sustainability into education and research for the creative industries such as fashion, furniture, media, film, and animation? Sustainability in Creative Industries describes and demonstrates its efforts and challenges.
The transition to an environmentally sustainable, circular, and climate-neutral economy has significant employment, educational, and social impacts. As the scale of major societal challenges escalate, so do the political and educational policies pushing for radical change. Recently established commitments to the European Green Deal, the European Skills Agenda, the new EU Circular Economy Action Plan, and a tsunami of Europe-wide legislation is about to hit creative industries and their modus operandi for doing business.
In Sustainability in Creative Industries, each chapter provides 'tales of the field' from lecturers and researchers at VIA University College, Design & Business, and the Research and Development Centre for Creative Industries and Professions. Together, the chapters offer an accumulated gallery of perspectives that serves as the backbone of the book. It is our hope that it can be used as an inspirational tool for those working with and interested in the challenges and opportunities of sustainability in creative industries and related educational institutions.
