Living Sustainably

As the UK continues to grapple with economic austerity and the challenge of climate change and to search for more vibrant and more sustainable communities, RESOLVE is running a challenging and stimulating one-day event on Living Sustainably.

Renowned American academic Juliet Schor (author of The Overspent American and Plenitude) and Tim Jackson (author of Prosperity without Growth) join Rob Hopkins (inspirational founder of the Transition movement) and Baroness Neuberger (chair of the House of Lords Behaviour Change Inquiry) to discuss key findings from RESOLVE, a 5-year ESRC funded Research programme on lifestyles, values and environment.

RESOLVE research at the University of Surrey focuses on the changing values, policies and practices involved in the transition towards a low carbon society.

Proceedings include keynote speeches, plenary discussions and research presentations on: cultures of consumption; carbon soundings; transition pathways; values and practices; governance and change.

To register please email: resolveconference@surrey.ac.uk or call 01483 686 689. Closing date for registration – Friday 3rd June 2011.
