The international association was founded in 2005 by Lillo Perri, an Italian journalist and publisher, who wanted S-Com to be a think-tank where European communication professionals could come together to think about sustainable communication. The aim was to think about ‘sustainability’ as a cultural change. Since its inception, S-Com has worked to demonstrate not only that communication plays an essential role in sustainability and innovation processes, but also that the active participation and continuous learning that underpin dialogue can lead to greater awareness and social integration of individuals and greater social justice.
Moving between the thinking on sustainability that led to the definition of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and European policies, over the years S-com has become a network of different types of organisations: universities, research centres, institutions, NGOs.
