Jacque (Jody) Emel, Clark University
Emel is Professor of Geography and Director of the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University. Her research focuses on the impacts of natural resource and concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) development. Her most recent grant from the National Science Foundation evaluated the linkages between corporate social responsibility and sustainability as fostered by foreign direct investment in Tanzanian gold mining. Research and writing on CAFOs was born out of the seminal volume, Animal Geographies: Place, Politics and Identity (co-edited with Jennifer Wolch, Verso 1998), that help to establish animal geographies as a sub-disciplinary area within geography. Earlier work employed critical social theory to examine the ideological effects of water-law systems, the narrowness of acceptable legal discourses distributing risk between mining companies and “host” communities, and the ethnic and ecological cleansing promoted by European settlement of the western United States.

Roberta Hawkins, Clark University
Roberta Hawkins is a PhD student in the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University. She is interested in applying feminist geography and political ecology perspectives to interrogate ethical consumption practices. Her dissertation research is entitled: “Buy a disposable diaper, save a life? An analysis of consumption as development intervention.” The project investigates cause-related marketing initiatives, where a corporation and non-profit organization collaborate to simultaneously promote a product and social issue [e.g., Product (RED)]. Usually a donation is made to the cause for each product sold. In this research she analyzes the discursive practices used to frame consumption as ethical and as a viable development intervention and looks at the way that these discursive practices encourage certain types of North-South relations over others. Roberta has an Bachelor’s degree in environmental science from Queen’s University (Canada) and a Masters degree in environmental studies from York University (Canada).

 

Anders Hayden, Boston College
Hayden is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Sociology at Boston College.

Meyer Professor of Natural Resource and Environmental Policy in the Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service, Affiliated Professor of Fine Arts, Faculty Associate in the Center for Environmental Research Outreach and Education, and Faculty Associate in the Social and Economic Sciences Research Center. Gene is currently a member of the Committee on Global Change of the National Academy of Sciences. Rosa’s research has focused on environmental threats and impacts—particularly energy, technology, risk issues, and global environmental change—and public perceptions of them. He is co-founder of the STIRPAT research program, a disciplined body of empirical research that uses a stochastic reformulation of the well-known IPAT identity in ecology to distinguish anthropological drivers—including consumption—and their relative effects of global environmental impacts. The current focus of the STIRPAT program is a comparison between environmental threats and objective and subjective indicators of human well-being. Gene is widely published, including articles in Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, American Sociological Review, AMBIO: A Journal of the Human Environment, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, Ecological Economics, Social Forces, American Journal of Sociology, Journal of Industrial Ecology, International Sociology, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Journal of Risk Research, Risk Analysis, Public Opinion Quarterly, Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, Annual Review of Sociology, Sociological Symposium, Human Ecology Review, Society and Natural Resources, Physics and Society, Social Science Quarterly, Organization and Environment, Journal of World Systems Theory, and Contemporary Sociology as well as numerous technical reports. His co-edited books—Public Reactions to Nuclear Power: Are There Critical Masses? and Public Reactions to Nuclear Waste: Citizens’ Views of Repository Siting—were acclaimed by both academics and policy makers. Rosa’s co-authored book, Risk, Uncertainty, and Rational Action won the 2000-2002 Outstanding Publication Award of the Section on Environment and Technology of the American Sociological Association. He is senior editor of the forthcoming book Human Footprints on the Global Environment: Threats to Sustainability (MIT Press).

Rachel Shwom, Rutgers University
Shwom is currently Assistant Professor of Climate and Society in the Department of Human Ecology at Rutgers University. Her research focuses on how production and consumption systems have and can change to mitigate and adapt to the risks and realities of climate change. Rachel understands these transformations not just as technological or economic processes, but inherently social and political processes. Her doctoral dissertation “Greens, Suits, and Bureaucrats: A Sociological Perspective on Interorganizational Relations in Appliance Energy Efficiency Policy” used longitudinal network analysis to study the evolution of government, business, and NGO dynamic power relationships in bringing new products to market over the past three decades. Schwom is currently following up this work with interviews to document factors influencing environmental NGO decisions to take cooperative and non-cooperative stances toward business and government organizations. Rachel has also conducted research on the impact that various forms of deliberation have on public support of climate change mitigation policies. She has published in Annual Review of Environment and Resources, Rural Sociology, Climatic Change, and Organization and Environment.

 

John Stutz, Tellus Institute
Stutz is a Vice-President and founding member of the Tellus Institute. Over 30 years, his research areas have included utility regulation, energy policy, waste management, conservation, and human well-being. The unifying theme has been the impact of consumption on individuals, the economy, and the environment. John has appeared as an expert witness on behalf of consumer advocates and regulatory commissions throughout the United States and in Canada, addressing issues of equity and efficiency as well as forecasting and conservation.

Linda Varangu, My Sustainable Canada
Varangu has been assisting businesses, governments, institutions, and citizens in adopting and transitioning to sustainable practices over the past 25 years. An avid sustainable consumption and production (SCP) practitioner, Linda has undertaken over 100 waste assessments, has been responsible for the development over 50 documents, guides, and pollution prevention plans for businesses, institutions, municipalities and civil society, and has sought to bring practitioners and academic researchers together in undertaking applied research.

She has also overseen the creation and/or growth of several organizations including the Municipal Waste Management Association, My Sustainable Canada, and the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care. Most recently, Varangu is co-founder and director with My Sustainable Canada, a not-for-profit organization focusing on sustainable consumption. This organization was created to more actively promote sustainable consumption as the majority of SCP initiatives concentrated on sustainable production, leaving gaps in knowledge, cooperation, and vision on sustainable consumption. Linda also serves as Partnership Director for the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care where she is responsible for the development of an organization to help “green” Canadian health care facilities and will be developing a Toxics Reduction Strategy for Health Care, amongst other initiatives. Linda has a Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering (University of Western Ontario) and Bachelor’s degrees in Chemistry and Biology (University of Waterloo). She advises on a number of committees including Canadian Standards Association Advisory Committee to ISO TC 207 (Environmental Management and Related Activities), University Health Network Energy Advisory Committee, Ontario Hospital Association Green Hospital Champion Fund, Great Lakes Bi-National Toxics Strategy Mercury Workgroup, Web 2.0 Ethical Consumer Learning Circle, Canadian Environmental Network Sustainable Consumption Workgroup, and Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) Extended Producer Responsibility Task Group.
