The University of Glasgow is a Connect with Climate Change podcast series of talks. 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? The next talk is Revisiting Consumption for a Climate Friendly Future. In Conversation With Professor Tim Jackson.
Taking place on Wednesday 18 August 2021 – Thursday 18 August 2022
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.
