The Sustainable DTP

 

The climate emergency is the most important issue facing us today. Without fast, thorough, and structural change we will not be able to avert catastrophe. This crisis affects all of us. For those working in the Arts & Humanities, how might we respond? What kind of contribution can we make and how might this work? It is easy to think that our work is not important or significant in the light of the climate crisis. However there are ways that we can think creatively about how to contribute to the ongoing effort.   

As a DTP we are committed to working in a sustainable way.

We really want to think carefully and deeply about what this means. In discussion with students, staff, and other members of the DTP we have drafted a Sustainability Toolkit, as a practical guide to creating events and running programmes with sustainability in mind. It also provides a set of ideas for how we might develop our practice over the next years.  

Our Sustainabilty Toolkit can be used to think about your research and outlines some of the actions we are committed to as a DTP.
