To teach and research about the crucial use of the moving image’ representation of the environment as a part of the necessary education for contemporary students of the environment and artists of the moving image, and for informed citizenship. To generate with colleagues dealing with the psychological effects of climate change an awareness of the dangers therein, via teaching, publication, and conferences.
