What's it about?

South East Staircase 

The War on Waste exhibition uses Second World War publicity techniques to draw attention to the environmental challenges facing us today. The wartime public was encouraged to see recycling — then called ‘salvage’ — as a contribution towards victory. This exhibition shows how similar techniques can be used to inspire change in the present. It is inspired by research on wartime recycling carried out by the historian Dr Henry Irving and was produced by a group of BA Graphic Design students at Leeds Beckett University.
