While sustainability is key topic for all sectors, the media and creative industries face particular challenges regarding their future. Market changes, fragmented audiences, low entry barriers allowing new players to come in, or technological disruptions are some of the underlying causes of this complex scenario. Now more than ever, creativity could serve as an driver of innovation and change.
This Special Issue is designed to spotlight contemporary research from business and management perspectives on how these companies are dealing with the present while assuring their future. Papers answering the following questions, or similar themes, are welcome:
- What are the relationships between sustainability and audience engagement?
- What are the main challenges for domestic cultural production to survive?
- What role does culture and creativity play in the business strategies of the creative industries and media companies?
- What are the implications of technology and innovation in the sustainable development of media companies?
- Is the increase in new startups and SMEs that offer communication and marketing services for companies sustainable?
- Are the current communication and marketing strategies sustainable within a VUCA scenario and the post-COVID-19 era?
- How should sustainable development of the creative industries be carried out?
- Is creativity a key factor for sustainable entrepreneurship and business development?
- How can we improve sustainability communication in media companies and creative industries?
- What is the influence of creative industries in the development of sustainable businesses?
- What is the impact of cultural appropriation on the sustainable development of creative industries?
