One Hundred Islands is an installation that has been created through a collaboration between The Bare Project Theatre Company and the CUSP. The installation responds to the concept of denial: in particular the denial of the immediate need for change. Why are we failing to act? Is it that we won’t listen or that we are unable to?
In our research we have been listening to young people around the world talk about their everyday lives, including what they like about where they live and what they might like to change. As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, you’ll be hearing about young peoples’ everyday urban lives, and will be able to engage with our international CYCLES team — and take home a visually rich summary document.
How do small businesses, micro businesses and those who are self employed put their sustainability values into practice while growing their business?
