COMMXPERIENCE 2023 International Conference and Call for Bookchapter Connection, Collaboration, and Cultivation for Sustainable Digital Ecosystems


International Conference and Call for Bookchapter

Connection, Collaboration, and Cultivation for Sustainable Digital Ecosystems

As internet usage and digital technology adoption grow rapidly in Indonesia, there is an urgent need to address associated sustainability challenges around issues like electronic waste, misinformation, and digital divides. Strengthening media literacy will be crucial, especially among youth, to promote critical
evaluation of online information, ethical digital citizenship, and sustainable tech consumption behaviors.
Media literacy education can encourage socially responsible use of social media, teach e-waste recycling practices, and counter misinformation on sustainability issues. Integrating media literacy into Indonesia’s national curriculum, teacher training, and partnering with civil society groups can expand its reach. With strong media literacy, Indonesia’s digitally engaged citizens can make empowered choices to minimize the pitfalls of technology and harness its full potential as a force for sustainable development.

The Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programs in Communication Studies organized CommXperience 2023 to accelerate the realization of the SDGs in both the academic and industrial sectors. Carrying the theme “Connection, Collaboration, and Cultivation for Sustainable Digital Ecosystems”, this event will combine perspectives from academic figures, professionals, and activists in a single dialogue space. Participants will gain a deep understanding of how to discuss sustainability issues in an inclusive, ethical, and effective way in the digital age. Moreover, this event also aims to inaugurate the opening of the Master’s Program in Communication Studies at the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, UPN Veteran East Java, which has a specialty in digital communication research. Additionally, this event will also serve as a discussion forum for participants of the Call for Book Chapter, which will be published nationally and copyrighted.
