Goldsmiths Design (Goldsmiths Design, University of London) design, university, school, research
Design has a huge influence on the way we live. In an increasingly uncertain world we are facing, for instance, climate change, globalised consumerism and social fragmentation. So designers need to think more deeply, critically and creatively about their activities than ever before. Appreciating this, we have developed contemporarily engaged and future-sensitive academic programmes that cultivate versatile, pioneering graduates, critically aware of their responsibilities to the environment and of the ethical dimension of their activities in influencing social processes and cultural formation.
