The conference is intended to provide an international platform for current research in the field of Sustainable Consumption. In addition, the Consensus conference will provide an opportunity to explore the potential for future research collaborations and facilitate exchange between currently existing SC networks. All conference participants at this specialised event are active members of US and European SC research communities. This conference is part of our Consensus project. Consensus (consumption, environment and sustainability) is a four-year collaborative research project involving Trinity College Dublin and the National University of Ireland, Galway. It examines four key areas of household consumption that currently impact negatively on the environment and inhibit our ability to achieve sustainable development across both Northern Ireland and the Republic: energy, water, food and transport. The Consensus project focuses on four key themes: 1. How to measure and evaluate consumption2. How incentives for sustainable behaviours can be developed 3. Identifying the links between consumption, health and wellbeing4. How matters of household consumption are being governed through institutional practice and participation.
