SCI Workshop: Household Sustainability and Social Inequalities

Activity: Participating in or organising event(s)Organising a conference, workshop, exhibition, performance, inquiry, course etc


In recent years, social science researchers have advanced understandings of the social, economic, institutional and cultural factors that constrain household members in their attempts to consume in sustainable ways. Yet little research has considered how such constraints vary along intersecting axes of social difference including ethnicity, socio-economic class and gender. This one-day inter-disciplinary workshop was designed to progress thinking on how research and policy communities can be more sensitive to the needs and constraints of various social groups, through an appraisal of current research on household sustainability.
The workshop brought together invited speakers from eight different UK universities, along with SCI staff members. In total, the workshop was attended by 22 people representing disciplinary perspectives from sociology, environmental politics, human geography, engineering and sustainability studies.
