This subject addresses how media practices can contribute to 'sustainability' in a wide variety of situations. It will involve focusing on the problems of developing, creating and implementing community based projects dealing with sustainability from varied perspectives. Students will work in teams and individually to formulate creative ideas around a specific project, discover practical ways to implement this, and work through relevant financial possibilities that would allow them to realise the project. Students will be taught a range of theoretical building blocks through which to frame their work, and will be guided through specific grant applications and budget processes.
