media as public good and a lever of sustainability

At a time when fake news, data fraud and trolls take up public attention, it is important to hold on to media and communication scholarship for provision of a balanced, and well-documented, understanding of media practices. It is well-known that complex constellations of media practices act as catalysts of coherence, coordination and interaction both for individuals, groups and larger societal networks. But how do these mediated practices foster cultures of communication that serve as enablers of sustainability? How does mediated sustainability play out at individual, group and wider networked levels? Which are the constraints of current media cultures for the development of sustainability? Can we draw on particular European traditions when developing media as practices of public good? This high-level conference will address these questions and illuminate their answers by insights drawn from cutting-edge research.
