London Transport Museum and Central Saint Martins collaboration
As a result of climate change, and the added impact the Coronavirus pandemic has had on our everyday lives, how we live and the way we interact with our immediate environment is changing. Society is globally re-evaluating the impact our lifestyles are having on the planet.
With this conundrum in mind, London Transport Museum has partnered with students from Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London MA Narrative Environments and MA Innovation Management courses, asking them to examine the theme of ‘London 2030’ and envisaging what four local communities in London would look like a decade from now. The four areas considered are Acton, Brixton, Kings Cross and Walthamstow.
Each team produced a short video telling the story of individuals in these areas, highlighting the key considerations and concerns of those living locally, the well-being of these communities and the wider need to address the accelerating climate emergency.
The videos are on display at the Museum in Covent Garden and can also be watched on the London Transport Museum’s website.
