Abstract Drawing on the presenter’s recent book, this presentation reports on insights for a transition to a sustainable low carbon energy future that can be drawn from a study of the role of energy technologies in historical waves of industrial change. Drawing on evolutionary economics and ecological economics, this study examines the role that access…
Abstract The Designing a Sensibility for Sustainable Clothing engages a small group of women in workshops that explore the making, mending and recycling of clothing, and uses creative methodologies to understand whether this alters the way they think, feel and act in relation to clothing.
