On the occasion of the International Sustainable Development Research Society (IDRS) conference taking place in June on the theme Accelerating the progress towards the 2030 SDGs in times of crisis, a group of colleagues are charing a new track on “Communication for sustainability”.
This new track was created in response of the urgency to take action and interact to achieve the UN Sustainable Development goals of the UN and contribute to new solutions for large scale societal challenges that we are experiencing. Communication scholars have an important role in counteracting social and environmental crises in developing and developed countries and provide knowledge that contributes to social transformation and sustainable development.
This track invites communication scholars and scholars from other disciplines to present and discuss research focusing on the role of communication in relation to sustainable development. Communication research has an important role to play in this transformation. Deadline for abstracts (300-500 words):
