WHY MEDIA MEET ?
MEDIA MEET is the annual conference of the Department of Media Studies, CHRIST (Deemed to be University) Bangalore, India. This platform will allow students to gain insights and knowledge from renowned academicians, researchers, and practitioners. Media Meet creates a forum to deliberate on topics lying at the intertisces of media, culture and society. The event is managed by the students of the MA in Media and Communication.
Seventeen goals, 169 targets. What was acknowledged by 193 countries in 2015 as matters of critical importance for our common good with 2030 as the deadline, has become a rallying force to mobilise our focus and resources and attain global sustainable development. As the preamble to the SDGs states, all the seventeen goals “... are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.” We are midway in 2023 and there is a definitive need to have reality checks, renew our promises, recharge our spirit and move with clarity and confidence towards the attainment of the sustainable development goals.
Working on a universal scale, requires the proactive intervention of the media. Apart from popularising the need for working towards the goals and targets, the media has the potential to persuade people to collectively prioritise and act for peace, planetary well-being and prosperity. Media Meet 2023, an International Conference on the seventeen Sustainable Goals aims to bring together media professionals, policymakers, academics, and civil society representatives from around the world to deliberate on the crucial role of the media in achieving the SDGs at the local, regional and global levels.
The conference will feature keynote speeches, panel discussions, exhibitions, film screening and interactive sessions, as well as opportunities for networking and collaboration. The conference will also feature a range of workshops and training sessions, aimed at providing media professionals and policymakers with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively promote the SDGs. This will be a platform for people working in the domain of media and SDGs to learn from one another, and to collaborate. We hope that this conference will be a step towards achieving the SDGs by/through the media.
