Building a Sustainable Hospital for the Future

Our talented GOSH patients bring environmental issues to life!

In April 2015 we revealed our inspiring 62 meter long artwork created by patients at the GOSH Sustainability Fair for NHS Sustainability day. 

The uplifting piece depicts the journey that GOSH needs to take to become a more sustainable hospital and brings together drawings by over 100 children and young people.

The project was run by GO Create! in collaboration with hospital Energy Manager Brendan Rouse and King's Cross-based House of Illustration, the UK's only gallery and education space dedicated to promoting and celebrating the art of illustration.

The artwork was created in workshops run by illustrator Sion Ap Tomos. Workshops took place accross the hospital, in wards, outpatient areas and the Children's Hospital School.

Creating the artwork offered children and young people an opportunity to engage with important issues around sustainability and to think about what is most important for them. 

We hope that their ideas will inspire others to think about what can be done now and in the future to make our hospital more sustainable.
