Short description

This inter-disciplinary project builds on an experimental field study to explore the role of theoretical and practical aspects of environmental education and practices. The project group holds research interests in economics, pedagogy and organization theory. In existing research it is found that the level of education and routines are important aspects for people to perform sustainability-focused practices in the everyday life, however, the establishment of such knowledge and routines is understudied. This project analyzes students’ experiences, and household influences, when performing a sustainability-focused educational program that links mundane housework practices with a larger sustainability context.
