The 2012 Imperative challenges institutions to use their resources, expertise and skills to respond to environmental imperatives and work towards embedding ecological literacy in design education by 2012. The Teach-in took place October 12 2009 at the V&A in London and was also broadcast live on-line. The lectures are now viewable on-line on the Teach-in website: www.teach-in.eco-labs.org.uk. A new on-line community is collaborating on this project: http://teach-in.ning.com.
