Abstract

The Arthur W. Page Center has announced its annual Page/Johnson Legacy Scholar Grant competition for the study of integrity in public communication. This year, the topic of the Center's call for research proposals is sustainability communication.

People. Planet. Profit. The adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was one of many global calls to action to create a more sustainable future. The SDGs include several environmentally-focused goals such as clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, responsible consumption and production, and climate action. As organizations aim to ethically and responsibly achieve their sustainability goals, transparency and effective communication and reporting about sustainability initiatives is essential.

Topics may include, but are not limited to the following:
► Engagement with specific audiences regarding sustainability communication (e.g., communities, activists, employees, influencers, consumers, media, etc.)
► Sustainability communication in various contexts (e.g., crisis communication, social media, etc.) and sectors (e.g., corporate, nonprofit, sport, etc.)
► Best practices in sustainability communication strategies and approaches
► Implications for organizational communication and reputation management
► Measuring and monitoring the impact of sustainability communication
► Political, ethical, legal, and moral perspectives and implications
► The connection between public relations and sustainability communication
► Theoretical or methodological innovations

Eligibility

Applicants may be scholars, researchers or doctoral candidates who will have completed their coursework and examinations and will be at the dissertation-writing stage during the year of the award, or practitioners of public communication.

A request for funding from the Conrad N.

C. If the project is for a ministry begun by a women’s religious congregation, but there are no vowed members involved for a minimum of 30 hours, HFS may consider funding it. In her letter of support, the superior will need to attest to the congregation’s continued governance and oversight of the project and describe the level of the congregation’s current involvement in the organization/project.
