Tackling the bad habits of un-sustainable consumption

Welcome to a lunch seminar with Marlyne Sahakian who will present her work on how to tackle the bad habits of un-sustainable consumption.

What does it imply to situate consumption in everyday life? Drawing from research on the consumption of energy, food and public spaces, Marlyne's talk will focus on how a social practice approach to understanding consumption can lead to deeper insights into normalization processes and transformative change. She concludes with a discussion around the notion of « sustainable wellbeing » and future research directions.

Her research interest is in understanding natural resource consumption patterns and practices, in relation to environmental promotion and social equity, and identifying opportunities for transitions towards more sustainable societies. 

 

The room Bora Bora is booked for this seminar. 

 

We hope to see you there!
