With sustainability continuing to be high on the agenda internationally, the film and media industries are beginning to enter into the debate. Not only from a content point of view but also with more consideration being given to kit design, recycling and maintenance. What are the issues and questions that we should be provoking in ourselves as educators and in our students. How is it possible in such a technologically driven industry and a numbers driven education system to ask difficult ideological and ethical questions of ourselves and our suppliers?

Increasingly the developing world is paying the price, in the form of human rights abuses, child labour exploitation, conflict minerals and poor working conditions, for the developed worlds reliance on advanced technology, a great deal of which is used by the tv and film industry. How do we become as ethical and thoughtful in our use and acquisition of kit as we are in our consumption of coffee and awareness of climate change?
