Media researchers have always been concerned with media change, new media, new genres and media usage. Researching new media developments, their political, cultural and economic contexts, new formats and new forms of user involvement are important issues in media research. This concern with new media has, however, to a large extent not been grounded in explicit theoretical considerations about innovation. Importantly, the media innovations can accelerate the awareness and knowledge about sustainable development issues affecting the countries. Furthermore, the media innovations can be utilized to proffer solutions that promote sustainable development goals.
Our 11th conference provides insights from selected studies that together illustrate how a more explicit focus on media innovations can provide new insights into and greater knowledge about emerging roles and types of media innovations for a sustainable development and how they can engage the community in conversations about sustainability issues. Besides, sensitivity to responsible citizens and corporates, practices and arrangements of sustainability are areas that require creating new roles, types, approaches and innovations of media.
