In our capacity as a place of learning, the FHNW Academy of Art and Design is keen to fulfil its social responsibility in terms of sustainable development.

It addresses the pressing issues of our time from a creative and artistic perspective not only in its study programmes and research projects, but also in form of public initiatives. Relying on realistic approaches to problem solving and relevant products, the Academy makes visible contributions to a pluralistic, democratic, and sustainable future.
