The Sustainable Consumption Institute will hold a half-day event to celebrate over a decade of cutting edge research and to launch a new research agenda for our new phase as an institute.  The theme is 'Materialising sustainabilities, reimagining futures', which captures our aims to both deepen and extend our thinking about the urgent socio-technical and political challenges of our time.

The event will involve a series of short talks about ideas, practices, strategies and innovations for changing dominant modes of provision and moving towards more sustainable societies. 

The speakers will include academics working in the SCI and high profile guests drawn from policy, enterprise and activist sectors.  Their talks will be pitched to an interested lay audience and designed to provoke discussion and debate. The event will be followed by a wine reception. 

Secure your place now by emailing Sci@manchester.ac.uk and we will get back to you soon with more details on confirmed speakers and the programme for the day.
