February - June 2022
Building creative spaces and enabling media ecosystems that stand the test of time.
Welcome to the Sustainable Media Lab! Located in the heart of The Hague, we bring together leading researchers, practitioners, and students to explore what more sustainable media systems could look like.
Rapidly changing technical, legal, and societal environments require a different way of thinking about media, its technical entanglements, and its role in society. Starting in February 2022, our researchers, students, and partners will start a variety of projects exploring the role of media in our society. From the intensification of fake news to the ways in which AI can pose a threat to our human rights, we are excited to explore the many wicked problems that affect our media systems in an agile and design-oriented way.
Meet the researchers, practitioners, and creative problem-solvers that are helping our Sustainable Media to make a serious impact!
Ben is Professor of Media, Technology and Society at Inholland and an Assistant Professor of Technology, Policy and Management at TU Delft.
Born and raised in The Hague, with a passion for media, culture and technology and its role in society, but also developing and designing activating education, the role of learning director in this lab fits me as a glove!
