As the UK continues to grapple with economic ‘austerity’ and the challenge of climate change and to search for more vibrant and more sustainable communities, RESOLVE invited you to a challenging and stimulating one-day event on Living Sustainably. Renowned American academic Juliet Schor (author of The Overspent American and Plenitude) joined Rob Hopkins (inspirational founder of the Transition movement) and Baroness Neuberger (chair of the House of Lords Behaviour Change Inquiry) to discuss key findings from a 5-year ESRC funded Research programme on lifestyles, values and environment (RESOLVE).

Proceedings included keynote speeches, plenary discussions and research presentations on: cultures of consumption; carbon soundings; transition pathways; values and practices; governance and change. A full conference programme can be found below.
