SCORAI members proudly present “Social Change and the Coming of Post-consumer Society”

938 scholars & professionals

SCORAI is a knowledge network of professionals working at the interface of material consumption, human well-being, and technological and cultural change. It aims to foster a transition beyond the currently dominant consumer society. It provides a forum for scholars and practitioners striving to understand the drivers of the consumerist economy in affluent technological societies; to formulate and analyze options for post-consumerist lifestyles, social institutions, and economic systems; and to provide the knowledge for emergent grassroots innovations, social movements, and public policies.
