About CJCR and GKE
Launched in 2010, the Centre for Journalism and Communication Research (CJCR) is directed by Professor Stuart Allan and based in
The Media School, Bournemouth University. The CJCR represents an array of interests and expertise and is committed to engage in real-world issues of pressing significance.
The Centre for the Green Knowledge Economy (GKE) at Bournemouth University integrates international expertise and knowledge from a wide range of subject disciplines, which includes ecosystems, economics, media, business and technology.
The MeCCSA Climate Change, Environment and Sustainability Network exists to strengthen the ability of MeCCSA and its members to respond to and lead the worldwide academic contribution to understanding media, communication and cultural studies where they meet issues of climate change, environment and sustainable development.
The network will do this by continually encouraging MeCCSA and its members to conduct research and seek interventions that account for the sustainability of its impact.
