Catastrophic Risk

The term ‘Global Catastrophic Risk’ refers to the possibility of causing significant harm to human well-being on a global scale. From volcanic eruptions to pandemic infections, nuclear accidents to global tyranny, uncontrolled scientific experiments to climate change, and cosmic disasters to economic collapse, these disasters can impact all of us. How can communication design be used to influence a change in human behaviour that will aid in managing the risks? 

'Global Catastrophic Risk' is chosen to encourage students to approach the global problems of the present era with greater maturity, responsibility, and effectiveness. By the end of the semester, all these works will be showcased in the first instalment of Resilient Bodies – a collaboration between two modules, Drawing & Making and Studio – an exhibition in which ‘the making and the thinking’ come together.

Research summary

By raising awareness and increasing consciousness, we can change the minds of individuals towards recycling.

Environmental awareness campaigns and movements are not new. Increasingly, our individual actions and the growth of consumerism contribute to these environmental problems. For decades, humans have recognised the consequences of our increased global waste production- and still, the problem persists. To address these issues, we need to understand why.

We focus on the human attitude and how it affects the environment. Specifically the action of recycling- a doubted method of waste management and deemed one of the most inconvenient. In understanding the human attitude towards it, we can begin to address and change perspective. Thereafter affecting the intention to act on our consciousness and individual action toward the environment.
