Addressing our sustainability problems means, among other things, reducing the resource intensity of everyday life. This means both changing and reducing consumption. "Sustainable consumption" is a theme at Centre for Consumption Research that aims to generate knowledge and understanding of how more sustainable consumption patterns emerge, evolve and stabilise.
Key questions are:
- How do sustainable consumption practices emerge and stabilise?
- How can unsustainable consumption practices and routines be changed?
- What role can businesses, non-governmental organisations and public authorities play in creating conditions for sustainable consumption?
- What does societal digitalisation mean for sustainable communication and consumption?
