SLRG Dissemination Workshop, 3 June 2014
Building on over a decade of research, the Sustainable Lifestyles Research Group (SLRG) has been developing new understandings of the processes which lead to changes in people’s lifestyles, behaviours and practices. This one day event aims to synthesise the lessons from our ground-breaking work and offer evidence-based advice to policy-makers hoping to build and nurture more sustainable ways of living. Featuring plenary presentations from the SLRG team and panel discussions with invited experts, the day will offer participants the opportunity of an in-depth understanding of our key findings and a lively debate about the challenges ahead.
