Michael Morpurgo gave a fascinating lecture to students and staff, as he opened the ‘Whole Earth?’ Exhibition at Canterbury Christ Church University on Friday 25th September.
The exhibition, which contains over 60 metres of compelling images and text, is based on the premise that the future belongs to today’s young people, who have a major role to play in making society more sustainable.
It explores solutions to current environmental problems, and challenges students and tutors to think about changing their courses to meet current and future needs.
“WHOLE EARTH? is a modern day Bayeux Tapestry – a visual monument of the environment that offers solutions to the problems of climate change and poverty. More importantly, it shows how students and universities everywhere can play a leading role in making society more sustainable.”
Joan Walley Chair of the House of Commons; Environmental Audit Select Committee 2010–2015; Chair of the Aldersgate Group
The ‘WHOLE EARTH?’ exhibition has been devised by leading environmental photographer, Mark Edwards, in collaboration with journalist and author, Lloyd Timberlake.
