iSustain Awards

The Institute for Sustainable Design (ISD) hosted the inaugural iSustain Awards Gala Dinner at the ALEX Design Exchange, University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Swansea on 15th April.


The evening showcased a selection of the success stories of the ISD project, culminating in an awards ceremony.  A performance by members of the Wales International Academy of Voice accompanied a three-course meal of locally-sourced produce.


“The awards mark a significant milestone in the University’s mission to support the economic development of the Swansea Bay City Region. Hosting the awards in the recently restored historic library in the heart of Swansea is a further demonstration of the strong partnership between the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and the City of Swansea in fostering the regeneration of the City’s Arts Quarter. “  Dr Ian Walsh


An illustrious panel of judges comprising Siw Erikstad Overland, an international expert from Edge Innovation, a management consulting company in Oslo, Norway and leading academics, researchers and knowledge transfer specialists from UWTSD made the initial short-listing.  The winners have been chosen following a further round of judging chaired by the Head of Knowledge Transfer & Commercialisation at the Welsh Government.
