Sustainable Development and the Arts,
Working Paper, 2011.

Abstract: The sustainability discourse has largely played out in the domains of natural sciences and technology, with recent contributions from the social and policy sciences. These contributions have been significant and our understanding of sustainability challenges has improved greatly over the past three decades.  However, our actions (individual, organizational and collective) have lagged behind and the actual problems of sustainability have become worse in the same period.  In this paper we argue that we can get better action and behavioral commitments to sustainability by using the arts, art-based methods, and aesthetics to develop passion and emotional connection for sustainable organizing and living.

Abstract: Innovation is considered today as a major asset for enterprises' sustainability which are striving to find new ways of development to ensure a sustainable economic, environmental and societal business. Innovation passes through the enterprise capability to create and call upon creative interdisciplinary knowledge and competences in close collaboration with the major actors of academic institutions. ARTEM constitutes an unique experience of serving sustainability where ARt, TEchnology and Management come together by collaborating around an educational, research and institutional project between three prestigious academic institutions (School of Fine Arts, Nancy School of Mines and ICN Business School) and also a consortium of about thirty important companies called ARTEM Entreprises. This project brings together artists, engineers and managers to create and use transdisciplinary knowledge and competences as a vector of competitivity and sustainability for local enterprises. This unique experience of collaboration between teachers and students coming from different educational perspectives is the subject of this chapter. We will argue that the junction of these three expertise domains promotes experimentation, creation and implementation of innovative actions through the emergence of creative and innovative atmosphere and through continuous contact with professional environments
