This question, and others, have been contributed by mediaX faculty and industry affiliates through interviews about priorities for the future.
mediaX invites YOU to consider these questions, refine and explore them, and – importantly – share what you’re working on to create a better future for all. We can do more together than any can do alone, so join the mediaXstanford LinkedIn community to identify critical issues (and solutions) for the future.
Question: Stories for Sustainability and Growth
In what ways can media and storytelling be leveraged to develop new understandings of the physical world and how humans interact with it, in order to inform and motivate actions towards a more sustainable future?
a. How might technology inform the interrelated dynamics of sustainability to help individuals and organizations make choices and take actions to improve collective and planetary health?
b. How can technologists and storytellers work together to share visions of positive socio-technical futures?
c. How might industry and university collaborate on reviving and sharing the success stories of under-represented innovators to support and inspire future leaders?
Questions for the Future have been enriched with results of mediaX research and programs over the past 21 years. Although mediaX programs have already initiated inquiries on some of these questions and organizations around the world are tackling one or more of them, the challenges are still considered open. These challenges are complex and concerted collaboration is needed to develop insights and implement solutions.
