Moreover, we are at the core of the School of Education and Communication new research profile EduCom: Educommunicating social sustainability

The research environment Media and Communication at Jönköping University (MCS) is profiled towards Sustainable Communication. The aim of this research milieu is to produce knowledge about how communication in various contexts – in journalism, organizations, politics, popular culture, etc. – might contribute to meeting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations’ sustainability agenda. MCS addresses all three dimensions of sustainability – environmental, social, and economic – and how communication in various forms might contribute to their reconciliation.

Within the framework of this research profile, the MCS researchers run the program Sustainable Communication, whose aim is to develop knowledge about the role of communication in sustainable development challenges (mediated communication in particular). Read more about this program here.
