MISTRA Environmental Communication Research Programme

MISTRA Environmental Communication Research Programme

The Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism at Charles University is one of the partners of the MISTRA Environmental Communication (MEC) Research Programme.


The MISTRA Environmental Communication (MEC) Research Programme is a four-year research project, based in Sweden and implemented by an international consortium, which includes the Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism at the Faculty of Social Sciences at Charles University. MEC's overarching aim is to reframe Swedish environmental communication, i.e., to mainstream an advanced and inclusive understanding of environmental communication in research, policy and practice such that it can effectively underpin and foster sustainability transformations. MEC draws on a transdisciplinary approach that involves researchers from a range of disciplinary backgrounds as well as non-academic partners representing crucial actors in wider society to harness existing thinking, co-develop new insights and approaches and translate these into communication practice.
