Inaugural SCORAI Workshop:
Individual Consumption and Systemic Societal Transformation
Scientists, academics, and practitioners from across North America met at Clark University on October 15-17, 2009 to explore approaches and the potential impact of sustainable consumption at the individual and household level. Invitees to this two-day event considered challenges at the interface of material consumption, human fulfillment, lifestyle satisfaction, and technological change. The aim of the gathering was to design a coherent North American research program, to forge connections between scholars and communities of practice, and to contribute to the ongoing policy dialogue on these issues.
