About SuCo2

Sustainable Consumption & Sustainability Communication (SuCo2)

SuCo2 (short for: Sustainable Consumption & Sustainability Communication) is an interdisciplinary research group at Wageningen University (The Netherlands) with team members from Arizona State University (USA) and Leuphana University Lüneburg (Germany).

We want to better understand the role that consumption plays in satisfying human needs, and how it impacts on individual, collective and planetary wellbeing. We explore new ways in communication and education to encourage and enable human beings to take up more sustainable lifestyles. Our research is driven by the broader motivation to advance more responsible ways of living in contemporary society.

In our projects, we are exploring how approaches like mindfulness meditation, storytelling, or citizen science can promote sustainable consumption among youths and young adults.
