A principal challenge to addressing the climate emergency is overconsumption. Consumption is embedded in our everyday lives, at the level of the individual, home, community, urban and wider national and global society. It involves the activities of multiple stakeholders whose actions and logics influence the consumer landscape. It is, therefore, important to consider the role of consumption and the consumer citizen within a multi-stakeholder landscape involving, individuals, households, communities, service providers, business and policy makers.

Join Deirdre Shaw, Co-Director of the Centre for Sustainable Solutions and Professor of Marketing and Consumer Research, University of Glasgow as she discusses this important topic with Tim Jackson*, Director of the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity and Professor of Sustainable Development at the University of Surrey.

Over three “bite-size” Podcasts they will explore key questions, including: How can we transform current consumption behaviours? What do climate friendly consumption lifestyles look like? How can we support and embed behavioural transformation?

*Professor Jackson is a world-renowned expert on sustainability and author of acclaimed publications in this area, including, the landmark book Prosperity Without Growth and most recently Post Growth Life after Capitalism.
