There’s no explicit requirement to embrace or teach the principles of sustainability within Richard’s job role, but it’s fundamental to his belief that design can create change within the world and to positively influence human behaviour at individual and society levels.
Richard has persisted in encouraging students to question, consider and embed sustainable thinking within their developing creative practice and has encouraged students to use design as a tool to enable positive social change rather than merely a means to generate profit through consumption of transient artefacts.
The Design Department at Goldsmiths has a reputation for taking a progressive, forward thinking approach to the subject, and Richard contributes to this from a practical, workshop and materials based position. The Department embeds issues such as sustainability within our teaching: students recognise and value this approach and choose to study Design at Goldsmiths University of London because of it.
