We, the undersigned, believe that the way in which we live is in conflict with the natural environment.
We believe that the choices made in our market driven, consumer orientated, fossil fuelled society are steering us to ever increasing environmental degradation, biodiversity loss and species extinction. The path we are on does not lead to a good destination for anyone, or anything.
It is important that we address and confront these issues. We want to re-assess our relationship with the natural world and help develop a sustainable, intelligent, fair, beautiful and ecologically rich future.
We believe art and design is a vital part of this.
Creativity is not a neutral, value-free process and the choices we make in the work we produce have impact. We choose to take responsibility to design and promote a sustainable future.
Art changes people, it can tell stories in ways that inspire people, moving them to think and act differently.
Art and design can create a vision of the world we want to inhabit.
