COMSUS organizes series of online brokerage events

In an era where the urgency of addressing climate change, inequality, and global conflicts has never been more apparent, the need for effective communication, especially in the domain of sustainability, is critical. The COMSUS project stands at the forefront of this challenge, aimed at empowering Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to serve as catalysts for a resilient, inclusive, and sustainable society. By leveraging the vast potential of social media, COMSUS aspires to inspire change, foster a sustainability mindset, and prepare individuals for green jobs, contributing to a sustainable economy.

The International Brokerage Events are a pivotal element of the COMSUS initiative. These 3-one day events are not merely gatherings but a beacon for change, facilitating the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and practices among educators, communication managers, and changemakers across the globe. By focusing on the development and dissemination of innovative e-courses and a manual dedicated to sustainable communication, these events are designed to elevate the conversation around sustainability and enact tangible change through the power of social media.

The significance of these events cannot be overstated. They offer a unique platform for participants to engage with the latest in sustainable communication strategies, share experiences, and foster partnerships that extend beyond geographical boundaries. In doing so, the Brokerage Events directly contribute to the COMSUS project's overarching goal: to harness the transformative power of HEIs in creating a more sustainable world.
