London South Bank University (LSBU) was encouraged to host the exhibition by the then President of our Sustainability Society. The exhibition gives students (and their tutors) the opportunity to express the kind of world they would like to live in.
Hosting The Whole Earth? exhibition provided a platform for the Sustainability Team to raise its profile as a team on campus and in doing so, has been able to engage many new contacts, groups etc. than had previously done so – internally and externally – a win-win! At least c. 800 LSBU students were directly engaged (our primary audience) as a result of coursework, seminars etc. on the back of seeing it. One School of Business lecturer single-handedly discussed, debated and set coursework tasks relating to Whole Earth? for c. 500 students.
The exhibition was located within a publicly accessible area providing the local community the chance to see it and to see what LSBU is focusing on.

2 Photographs are a powerful medium – these photos live up to their billing in this exhibition.
3 To make the most of this opportunity – appoint a dedicated resource to curate it.
