CfP: Global Sustainable Development Goals in a Mediatized World


The Austrian Academy of Sciences invites poster contributions from researchers in Austria to the international symposium ”Global Sustainable Development Goals in a Mediatized World.” We particularly welcome contributions that focus on the following topics:

  • Research related to any of the 17 SDGs
  • Communicating research results that contribute to implementing the Agenda 2030

Achieving the goals laid out in the Agenda 2030 in a mediatized world poses new challenges and opportunities for all stakeholders, including the scientific community. Mediatization shapes public discourses and thus influences the way in which the Agenda 2030 is reflected, criticized, and implemented. Communication plays an important and sometimes decisive role in the awareness and individual acceptance and the political and economic legitimation of the SDGs due to digitalization, convergence, and globalization in a rapidly changing societal environment. The symposium will highlight these aspects, discuss the consequences across disciplines, and elaborate the implications of research related to the implementation of the Agenda 2030.

With this symposium, the Austrian Academy of Sciences intends to highlight the contributions that Austrian scientists can make to the SDGs and deepen the interdisciplinary dialogue among scientists and beyond. In particular, we welcome colleagues with areas of expertise not typically considered when discussing the SDGs.
