MRes – Commitment of the events industry to advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) post-Covid-19

A Master’s by Research (MRes) course allows you to embark upon a research degree by undertaking a research project at Master’s level which will be assessed via submission of a thesis and a viva voce. 

By undertaking this degree within Bournemouth University Business School your research project will be developed in collaboration with our academic university staff who will provide you with specialist knowledge and supervisory input, while accessing BU’s technical facilities and information resources.

Research topic

The events industry is well positioned to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) as it focuses on bringing people together, provide spaces for meaningful interaction, share information, knowledge and raise awareness of organisational and societal challenges.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). The project seeks to examine how event stakeholders in the UK can renew their commitment to advance the SDGs post-COVID, with particular emphasis on UNSDG No.5, gender equality, No.8 decent work and economic growth, No.12 responsible consumption and production and No.13 climate action.
