The chapters in this book have examined transformative pedagogies in art and designtertiary education that address issues of the environment, and how these can be drivenby the capacities and forms of creative agency inherent to art and design disciplines.Acknowledging the inherent interdisciplinary pedagogical scope of social changeagendas, which are able to generate novel, relevant, and timely engagement withglobal issues, the authors offer studio practice and field-based case studies embracingecological and broader environmental imperatives, and the dimensions of socialresponsibility and engagement these imperatives impart. These range from personalresponse to activism, to exercising the public platform of exhibition in preparation forprofessional immersion, to engagement with the local as an instance of the global, andthe urban as an instance of the wild. As Noel Castree and Bruce Braun note, afundamental question to be asked is “who constructs what kinds of nature(s) to whatends and with what social and ecological effects?” (2001, p. xi).
