“Art is the queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world.”
- Leonardo da Vinci
One new communication activity that we have introduced this year is our 2014 sustainability research review which highlights a small selection of the world changing research undertaken at the ISSR (to read the review click here). As an institute, we have achieved a lot this year – embedding healthcare sustainability into the curriculum, furthering the understanding of the carbon capture potential of peatlands, investigating the role of the media in covering global environmental challenges, investigating the energy performance gap between design and operation of buildings, and supporting over 100 million eco journeys………. to name just a few……
Using the art of photography has been important to us at the ISSR to help communicate the breadth of research expertise (as outlined in a previous blog).
Also within the research review, we try to use the art of photography to make the publication interesting and engaging, as well as academic.
"The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web."
- Pablo Picasso
“I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees for the trees have no tongues.”

“After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in esthetics, plasticity, and form. The greatest scientists are always artists as well.”
