It has been stated earlier, that teaching is one of my fundamental tasks alongside with other ways of working for ”another development”.

Once again (January-May, 2024) I will teach at the course ”Media, Communication and Sustainable Development” – a course organized by the Department of Culture and Media Studies at Umeå University. I will do that together with a number of teachers and experts on media, communication and journalism.

My role in this course is to provide the students with knowledge about the concept of sustainable development, various empirical trends, debates and conflicts related to sustainable development. I will also highligt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; context, history and challenges.

A key message in the lectures is that sustainable develpment need to be analyzed in relation to international relations, politics and history.

This is the forth time I am teaching in this course, and I am happy to involved in this work due to the importance of media and communication when working for sustainable development in the age of humans – the anthroposcene.
