Abstract or description

This paper examines the broad practical and theoretical research behind a book due for publication in early 2021 entitled ‘Beyond the Blue Economy: Creative Economies and Sustainable Development in Small island developing States’.
It highlights some of the challenges of delivering the blue economy in the real world and the role that the digital-creative industries can play in supporting that goal, broadening the economic bases of island nations and thereby building resilience to the kind of external shocks we are now experiencing.
This paper seek to make a clear argument for the digital-creative industries being central to a more sustainable economy for small island developing states (SIDS), both in terms of the specifics of developing creative, knowledge-based economies but also understanding the impact that a strong creative sector has on innovation and entrepreneurship across all sections of industry, society and culture.
