A knowledge network of professionals working at the interface of material consumption, human well-being, and technological and cultural change
SCORAI 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.
The Colloquium series is funded by the Rasmussen Foundation
John Thøgersen, founder of the Virtual Community on Sustainability and Consumption and member of Scorai, was awarded the Danish Marketing Research Prize, including a painting and €10,000, for his research on sustainable consumption and sustainable marketing.
The goal of this workshop was to explore opportunities created by the renewable energy transition to encourage more sustainable lifestyles through cultural change and reduced consumption.
