Mitigating the social and environmental impacts of contemporary provisioning systems constitutes a grand challenge the 21st century. Academics and practitioners from across disciplines as diverse as architecture, business, industrial ecology, sociology, and beyond are actively engaged both in deepening understanding of the scale of these problems and articulating solutions. Yet movement to implement sustainable consumption lags significantly behind these advances in knowledge.
In collaboration with the VELUX Endowed Chair in Corporate Sustainability and hosted by the Copenhagen Business School, the Third International Conference of the Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative (SCORAI) will be held in Copenhagen on June 27–29, 2018. The event will comprise paper presentations, panel discussions, and keynote presentations by acclaimed speakers. Copenhagen has been in the vanguard of cities around the world actively engaged in facilitating more sustainable lifestyles and the conference will enable participants to learn firsthand about some of the world’s most sustainable solutions to challenges in the domains of transportation, food, energy, and urban design.
