Welcome to the Sustainable Consumption Teaching Series, where we invite researchers and practitioners in the field of “sustainable consumption” to develop short video presentations on specific themes. These videos are designed to supplement course material, either as an introduction to a topic or a deepening of a specific theme.
Through these videos, we hope to engage students at the graduate level and advanced undergraduate level in thinking critically about (un)sustainable consumption. Students will gain knowledge on a topic, but also develop thinking skills to understand the complexity and imagine sustainable transformations. These videos are also widely accessible to researchers and the general public.
We hope these videos will be relevant to any teaching exercise that engages with sustainability, the environment, economics, policy, development and/or social change, from a consumption, consumer, household or citizen perspective.
All below videos are accessible, at no charge.
