Save the date: Sustainable Consumption Institute Festival 2019 - Materialising sustainabilities, re-imagining futures, University of Manchester, UK

The Sustainable Consumption Institute (SCI) at the University of Manchester will hold a half-day event on 5 December 2019 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 the Institute’s aims to both deepen and extend its thinking about the urgent socio-technical and political challenges of our time.

The event, which is aimed at an interested lay audience, will feature several short talks on ideas, practices, strategies and innovations for changing dominant modes of provision and moving towards more sustainable societies. The event will be followed by a wine reception.
