Welcome to RESOLVE
The ESRC Research Group on Lifestyles Values and Environment (RESOLVE) is an interdisciplinary collaboration located entirely within the University of Surrey, involving four internationally acclaimed departments: the Centre for Environmental Strategy, the Surrey Energy Economics Centre, the Environmental Psychology Research Group and the Department of Sociology.
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council ESRC as part of the research councils’ energy programme from May 2006 until November 2011, RESOLVE's aims were to unravel the complex links between lifestyles, values and the environment. The group aimed to provide robust, evidence-based advice to policy-makers in the UK and elsewhere who are seeking to understand and to influence the behaviours and practices of ‘energy consumers’.

RESOLVE’s work has now been taken up within a follow-on project: the Sustainable Lifestyles Research Group, core funded by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Scottish Government.
