How DO We Shift to Sustainability?

There’s no longer a question that change is needed. There’s also no question that a better, more sustainable, world is possible. But we will have to make changes to get there. We need to shift. Shift our behaviour, shift our policies, shift the way we deal with stuff and our planet.

But what can we actually do as people, as NGOs and as local governments? What should you think about when designing strategies? How can we take into account how people really think and behave and enable change? What options are actually effective? And what has worked elsewhere? In short, how can we actually make the shift to a sustainable world?

This is what we need to find out, and this is where our consulting work is, especially in the area of behaviour change, local governments, innovation and policy. This is also what I blog about.

Please get in touch to discuss your needs in this area.

Some interesting solutions. And even when I lived there in the late 90s you had to pay for garbage bags as a sort of waste tax. And I wonder if there are other ways to waste less banchan... ... See MoreSee Less
