UK-based Hard Rain Project wins prestigious international sustainable development award

The Hard Rain Project, a UK-based education for sustainable development programme, has been selected as one of the three winners of the international UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) 2017. 

The Hard Rain Project was selected for its international programme “Hard Rain” and its follow-up “Whole Earth?”, which bring art, science and education together to raise awareness on pressing global issues such as poverty and climate change, and to stimulate thinking and action towards more positive futures. It works with world-renowned artists, scientists and communicators to carry its message to schools and universities, and to a wider public, through exhibitions, books, films, talks and events. Read more here

The EAUC hosted a webinar in May of this year which chronicled Canterbury Christ Church University’s experience of hosting the highly successful Whole Earth? exhibition by the award winning photo journalist, Mark Edwards, which has toured universities in the UK and overseas.  It is underpinned by the notion that the ideas which students acquire at university today will permeate their professional lives and that developing a sustainability mindset in crucial in addressing current planetary problems.
