David Rousell is Senior Lecturer in Creative Education at RMIT where he co-directs the Creative Agency Research Lab. For the past decade his research has focused on collectively re-imagining educational cultures and practices in response to the urgency of climate change. This work is situated at the nexus of environmental philosophy (ontology, ethics, aesthetics, politics), environmental education (pedagogy, curriculum, learning design), and the environmental arts (history, theory, practice). David founded the Local Alternatives platform in 2017 as a springboard for climate-responsive art and research in collaboration with children and people. The platform has seeded more than 15 collaborative projects in cities across Europe and Australia, and has led to co-produced exhibitions and public programs with children in universities, galleries, museums, libraries, and community art spaces. David has published over 50 peer-reviewed articles, chapters, and books across a diverse range of fields, including environmental education, art and design education, architecture, childhood and youth studies, creativity studies, (post) qualitative inquiry, cultural geography, environmental philosophy, and the posthumanities.
