PhD defence: Tina Joanes

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Tina Joanes has submitted her thesis entitled: Sufficiency for Sustainability: Determinants and Strategies for Reducing Clothing Consumption

Monday, June 17, 2019 - 14:00 to 16:00

This PhD thesis examines the psychological determinants for reduced clothing consumption, which is understood as one example of urgently needed behavioural changes to mitigate climate change. It is investigated how these determinants can be addressed with an intervention encouraging consumers to buy fewer items. Building on the evaluation of such an intervention, potential pathways for practitioners, educators and other interested actors aiming at promoting reduced consumption are discussed.
