Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Identity, inequality and personal life in an unsustainable globalised world

Our personal lives are key sites of consumption. How are we contributing to a more or less sustainable planet?

In societies with high rates of digital connectivity and consumption, identities, social distinctions and inequalities are often expressed through digital communication and consumption - what we own, how we dress, what we eat and so on.

Our personal lives are key sites of consumption contributing to the reproduction of social divisions or social change and  to a more or less sustainable planet

Following the talk there will be a Q&A with Prof. Jamieson

Prof. Lynn Jamieson is based in the School of Social and Political Science at University of Edinburgh and is a co-founding Director of The Centre for Research on Families and Relationships

Doors open at 6.15pm
