The role of culture for sustainable development has increasingly entered the debate on sustainability, bringing attention to the contribution of CCIs – Cultural and Creative Industries to reaching sustainable development goals but also questioning if cultural and creative industries are implementing practices that are socially, economically and environmentally sustainable. The course “Managing cultural and creative industries for sustainable development” stems from the global discussion (both among academics and professionals) and aims to help the students develop their critical perspective on the topic and use their knowledge in their managerial practice in the cultural and creative industries.
By means of international case-studies in Africa, America, Asia and Europe the course, students will develop their knowledge and skills in a highly interactive class which includes debates, presentations from experts, and group works.
