Stories for Change

Ian Christie speaks at Communicate 2013 conference
06 November 2013, Bristol (UK)
As part of a plenary session on 'liberating stories' concerning environmentally conscious lifestyles and value, Ian Christie gave a presentation at the recent Communicate 2013: Stories for Change conference. Ian's talk essentially drew on the SLRG ELiCiT project work and presented its understanding that people who are undergoing significant transitions in their lives (e.g. moving home, arrival of first child) seem to be particularly receptive to messages and incentives concerning sustainable consumption - an important insight that enables future policy makers to create more sensible and meaningful institutional mechanisms towards more sustainable lifestyles.
