Vancouver (2012)

The 3rd Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative (SCORAI) workshop took place from March 8-10, 2012 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. The theme was: Challenging consumerism: toward living well sustainably. This workshop had three objectives:

  • To deepen the knowledge base of how systemic changes toward a more sustainable society can take place;
  • To assemble the empirical findings from local practices in sustainable well-being that are being demonstrated in localities across North America and internationally;
  • To examine the above findings through the lenses of critical theory, policy making, business strategy, technology assessment, sustainability education, and others, with an eye toward identifying those that have potential for mainstreaming and promoting systemic change.
