London College of Communications has announced the line-up for its annual Green Week – a series of free talks, exhibitions and workshops exploring environmentally conscious creative work.

This year’s theme is survival and the five-day programme, which runs from February 10-14, includes a look at environmental and ethical photography, design, film-making, journalism, product design and architecture projects.

Nat Hunter and Sevre Davis of the RSA will be debating design for social impact, Tom Hunter and Robert Elms will discuss the theme of home in photography, and the Design Council’s John Mathers will give a lecture on ‘world-changing creativity’.

D&AD is also taking part in the programme, hosting New Blood White Pencil feedback sessions and a two-day National Trust workshop with Fred Deakin. Other hands-on events include a workshop making books from waste materials, an insect-tasting session and activities exploring sustainable materials such as natural dyes, alternative power sources and urban regeneration.

Student and graduate events include an exhibition of design activism from graphic media and design students, an environmental photography show held by LCC alumni and a screening of Brian Hill’s 2010 documentary, Climate of Change, hosted by MA documentary film students.

A full programme is available here. For more info or details on how to book events, see the LCC blog.
