The workshops are run by the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network which is backed and led by the University of the Arts in partnership with Imperial, RIBA and TIGA.
We’re going to be running two workshops in September to explore what sustainability means for you and your industry and what needs to be done in order to change the status quo and seize the opportunities that the big challenges ahead create.
Through interactive workshop sessions, facilitated by Forum for the Future, we’re going to explore the major implications for the creative industries over the coming 20 years. We’ve sketched out the implications from the commonalities across 4 plausible future scenarios of 2030.
This is part of the Sustainability Beacon Project run by Forum for the Future and the Creative Industries Knowledge Transfer Network.

So the CSF is getting very excited about next week’s event, bringing together leaders and innovators on sustainable development and the creative industries to as, can the creative industries lead us to a sustainable future?
YES, we say, although we are sure there will be some more heated debate than that. Head of London College of Fashion Prof Frances Corner will be lead to the doughnut by sustainability guru Jonathon Porritt and joined by Lord David Puttnam, Sebastian Conran, Tim Brown (CEO and president of global design consultancy, IDEO), Franny Armstrong (Director of The Age of Stupid and founder of 10:10) and Michael Pawlyn (Director, Exploration Architecture).
The doughnut is, I assure you, a technical phrase and the centre piece of the ‘talkaoke’ format being used by Forum for the Future and the Creative Industries KTN for the event. This will stimulate highly interactive debate, and you can be a part of proceedings by tuning into the live webstream and offering your comments via Twitter.
