Mission

SCORAI (Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative) is an international knowledge network of researchers and practitioners committed to building a flourishing and ecologically-sound society by changing the way we consume.

We advance research, disseminate knowledge, impact policies and support campaigns. SCORAI recognizes that technological innovation alone is insufficient to address climate change and environmental threats. Therefore we support transformative changes in the economy, institutions and culture.

Regional Chapters

SCORAI was founded in 2008 in the USA in order to build connections among researchers and practitioners working on sustainable consumption. Since its modest beginning as a North America-focused network, it has become a global organization with approximately 1400 members in 2020.

When the vibrancy and size of SCORAI participants in Europe, Israel, China and Brazil reached a critical mass, they created their own identities as SCORAI affiliates. SCORAI International remains anchored in North-America, its region of origin, but at the same time enjoys a global membership, and supports coordination and communication with regional affiliates via its newsletter and listserv.

The members of the SCORAI Executive Board, SCORAI Advisory Board, and others readily contribute their time and energy without compensation, but we still need financial resources to coordinate our growing network and support the exchange of ideas. To maintain activities at the current level we ask you to become a contributing SCORAI subscriber. We are seeking for your annual contribution of US $50 ($25 for students, retired and others in special circumstances) to reach the goal of $5,000 before the end of 2019. Of course, more generous donations are gratefully welcomed!
