117 students across ESALA responded to the 2021 Climate Curriculum Student Survey. Despite an overwhelming agreement (97.3%) that sustainability was ‘definitely’ important in architecture, only 40.6% felt satisfied or very satisfied with their education regarding sustainability. From these results, it is evident that significant improvements are required to increase climate literacy at ESALA.
An active response was received from the Head of School, Richard Anderson, and discussions are to take place throughout the academic year with the proposed involvement of programme directors to work on short and long-term changes put forward in response to the survey report. More students are encouraged to take a seat at these discussions and progress updates will be communicated throughout the academic year.
