Venture three have been working with the UNCCD on an on-going brief to promote the Great Green Wall to the world. Venture three opened this brief further by inviting final year BA GMD students at LCC to help us make the Wall famous.

In answering the brief, students were asked to think about raising awareness in unexpected ways using non-traditional media. They also wanted the students to express the positivity and dynamism of what is an incredibly optimistic, ambitious initiative.

After an overwhelming response, 10 students were selected to exhibit their work at our studio, sharing their ideas with an audience that included representatives from the UN, and the Executive Secretary of the UNCCD, Monique Barbut. Three pieces of work have now been selected for further development and could well be brought to life in 2016.
