The ‘Greening the Screen’ project has benefitted Bournemouth University by providing a much-needed case study from which staff can draw on the expertise and the pitfalls of moving towards media education practice for sustainable development.
Whilst it is fairly simple to teach students industry practices, the challenge the project faced was in how to embed industry sustainable practice within the media production culture in higher education. Through direct links with ALBERT, the sustainable arm of BAFTA, BU hopes to continue to guide and lead discussion across the HE sector in how best to apply and embed media industry sustainable principles to HE teaching and learning.
The success of this project is the start of many small, but significant, steps towards a sustainable future and one that equips staff and graduates with the knowledge to enable a critical view of the world they inhabit both personally and professionally.
Top 3 learnings:
1 Put yourself forward; sustainable practice is in its infancy in media industry but industry is catching up!
2 Trying to reach critical mass takes time; be prepared to take small consistent steps.
3 Industry carbon calculation tools are not always fit for HE purposes. ‘Albert in Education’ hopes to address this.
