Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Conscious Cinema

The Conscious Cinema Series is curated for students to take a deeper look at issues and topics we would like to address throughout the coming year.

Conscious Cinema, supported by Take One Action

The films will be screened online for semester one, and hopefully in person for semester two. Post screening we have an open discussion to which all are encouraged, and welcomed to contribute.

The series is programmed in partnership with Take One Action.

If you would like to get involved, or suggest a film screening please contact Rachel.Chisholm@ed.ac.uk with any questions.

We want you to know exactly what will happen with your data if you attend our events or sign up to our newsletter. Please view our privacy statement.
