About us


GSA Sustainability works within the Glasgow School of Art’s curriculum and estate on issues of social, environmental and ethical (SEE) interest.

We support students to question their practice, to question why things are done the way they are, and to offer future solutions and inspiration to create a more positive, innovative society, and a safer and better planet.

GSA Sustainability is administered by the Sustainability in Action Group. Under its Convenor Prof. Tim Sharpe it discusses and takes action on SEE issues. Any student or staff member may join the group and help direct its course.

As an official GSA working group, SiAG also advises and is available to assist any professional service or discipline within the School.

GSA Sustainability is supported by its full-time Sustainability Coordinator John Thorne 0141 353 4652

Previous projects run by GSA Sustainability include ARC and Radial.

GSA Sustainability aims to have a positive impact within the GSA community, working extensively with external partners and other higher education institutions.

See the events page for our next SiAG group meeting.
