SustainRCA is a research department at the Royal College of Art dedicated to sustainability, and inspiring and educating students.

Working across all disciplines, we guide students, helping them produce innovative solutions to and critical thinking around some of the most pressing social and environmental issues of our time. 

We bring together interdisciplinary groups with a variety of skills to work and consult with local and global organisations, helping them imagine new and positive futures. Our series of talks and events span topics as diverse as the demise of the UK's high streets to data visualisation and consumption patterns. 

Every year culminates in the annual Sustain Show & Awards, which honour the very best of graduates' work, bringing to the fore excellence in sustainability, and showcasing the wide range of talent and expertise across the RCA.
