Thèmes abordés
This course addresses the issue of consumer social responsibility in achieving more sustainable consumption-production-patterns.
The issues covered will range from ethical critics of consumerism (e.g. the recent scandal of Amazon destroying massive amount of as-new returned items) to the diverse strategies set up to foster sustainable consumption:
  • buying fair-trade
  • buying green
  • zero waste
  • sharing
  • recycling, re-using
  • simplicity, sufficiency & de-growth
  • local food networks
  • slow movement
  • consumer activism
  • ...
Moreover, based on some non-ethical practices quite frequently observed in practice, we will discuss the growth of consumer activism as well as the design and implementation of a sustainable marketing approach.
