Newsletter provides film project updates

A project to examine and address inequality in the film and television industries led by experts at DMU has published its December newsletter containing conference calls, interviews and a database survey. Evolution Film was established in 2022 and forms part of the British Academy Innovation Fellowship between Prof CJP Lee, De Montfort University, and Jones Bamber Productions Ltd. Its December newsletter provides updates and opportunities on the work of the project which champions a number of sustainability targets contained in the goals of 5, 10, 16 and 17 and more.

International campuses unite for the SDGs

Students and staff from DMU’s international campuses came together to discuss their sustainability societies in a bespoke online call.

DMU Leicester, Dubai and our Trans-National Education (TNE) partner Asia Pacific University in Malaysia came together to share their work towards various UN SDGs.

Students spoke about the projects they had done so far and what they would like to do in future.

One of the ideas is to hold an online sustainability hackathon between the three universities to create solutions to SDG challenges that can be delivered by the students locally.

The early morning call in Leicester – to accommodate time differences in Dubai and Kuala Lumpur – saw about 30 students and staff take part.
