Event description

Description

At the Sustainable Consumption Institute (SCI) we are celebrating a decade of existence with the launch of a new research agenda that will deepen and extend our thinking about the urgent socio-technical and political challenges of our time.

The new research agenda will be presented at the Festival 'Materialising Sustainabilities, Re-imagining Futures', a half-day event that will combine talks from the SCI academic team as well as business, entrepreneurs, policy makers and social activists representatives.

The new research agenda takes a critical perspective on sustainability in the face of growing social inequalities, and documents the SCI’s ambition to engage and respond to the current societal challenges with our expertise, now more valuable than ever.

Pressing issues such as climate change, accumulation of plastic in the world’s oceans, and unequal access to sustainable products and services require the imagination to re-invent our shared future, and then do the hard work of materialising these futures so they deliver on the need to be more ecologically and socially sustainable.

This Festival is an open invitation to citizens, politicians, fellow researchers, policy makers, CEOs, and NGOs to join us in collaborations to help re-imagine futures and materialise sustainabilities.
