The research centres around the established motivational concept of psychological e...

Education for sustainable consumption through mindfulness training: Development of a consumption-specific intervention

Stanszus, Laura ; Fischer, Daniel ; Böhme, Tina ; Frank, Pascal ; Fritzsche, Jacomo ; Geiger, Sonja ; Harfensteller, Julia ; Grossman, Paul ; Schrader, Ulf (2017-06-16)

Several widespread approaches to Education for Sustainable Consumption (ESC) have emerged from the tradition of consumer information. A major shortcoming of such cognitive-focused approaches is their limited capacity to facilitate reflection on the affective processes underpinning people’s engagement with consumption. More holistic pedagogies are thus needed to increase the effectiveness of ESC...

The future of the present

Artan, Elif Cigdem (2021)

This study examines the contribution of activist videos from the Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy Gezi Park movements to non-authoritarian and non-linear history-writing. To this end, it focuses on three major domains with particular points of interest in each: a) urban—the temporary emergence of commoning practices in and footage from early twenty-first century social movements, b) image—the ...

Im Zwischenraum der beschleunigten Moderne

Kellermann, Robin (2021-01-01)

Wartezeiten bilden ein unliebsames Alltagsphänomen, das uns jenseits seiner negativen Zuschreibung tiefe Einblicke in die Zeitkultur der Moderne gewährt. Anhand einer Archäologie von Architekturen und literarisch-künstlerischen Rezeptionen des Wartens zeigt Robin Kellermann am Beispiel des Eisenbahnverkehrs auf, wie sich Rahmung und Wahrnehmung dieses zeitlichen Zwischenraums im Laufe der Moder...

Sustainable meal choices in the out-of-home catering market are essential to attaining the Sustainable Development Goals. This study investigated consumers’ acceptance of different features that help service providers to work more sustainably. For this purpose, data of a choice experiment and a supporting online questionnaire were analyzed using latent class analysis (LCA) and the data of n = 3...

Re-thinking mobility poverty

(2020-12-18)

This book seeks to better conceptualise and define mobility poverty, addressing both its geographies and socio-economic landscapes. It moves beyond the analysis of ‘transport poverty’ and innovatively explores mobility inequalities and social construction of mobility disadvantages. The debate on mobility poverty is gaining momentum due to its role in triggering social exclusion and economic dep...

Internal crowdsourcing in companies

(2021)

This open access book examines the implications of internal crowdsourcing (IC) in companies. Presenting an employee-oriented, cross-sector reference model for good IC practice, it discusses the core theoretical foundations, and offers guidelines for process-management and blueprints for the implementation of IC. Furthermore, it examines solutions for employee training and competence development...

Meditating for the Planet: Effects of a Mindfulness-Based Intervention on Sustainable Consumption Behaviors

Geiger, Sonja M. ; Fischer, Daniel ; Schrader, Ulf ; Grossman, Paul (2020-11-01)

Recent research suggests that mindfulness may foster sustainable consumption behavior through the reduction of the so-called attitude–behavior gap, or by weakening material values while increasing subjective well-being. The current controlled longitudinal study tested these propositions by employing a sustainability-adapted mindfulness-based intervention (sMBI) to two different samples (n = 60 ...

Integrating employees in corporate sustainability innovation

Schmidt-Keilich, Marc (2021)

The integration of consumers in sustainability innovation processes is a promising approach to make these innovations more successfull. However, involving innovative consumers, e.g. lead users, often involves a lot of effort when they have to be identified and recruited from outside of the company. In contrast, recent studies in innovation management literature increasingly point to the innova...

The association between regular use of ridesourcing and walking mode choice in Cairo and Tehran

Mostofi, Hamid ; Masoumi, Houshmand ; Dienel, Hans-Liudger (2020-07-13)

The rapid adoption of ridesourcing poses challenges for researchers and policymakers in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), as it is an evolving new transport mode, and there is little research explaining its effects on mobility behaviors in this region. There is a concern that ridesourcing, which offers convenient and relatively cheap door to door services, encourages citizens to replace ...

Limiting food waste via grassroots initiatives as a potential for climate change mitigation: a systematic review

Mariam, Nikravech ; Valerie, Kwan ; Karin, Dobernig ; Angelika, Wilhelm-Rechmann ; Nina, Langen (2020-12-16)

An estimated 30%–50% of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted each year. These global food loss and waste (FLW) annually generate 4.4 Gt CO2-eq, or about 8% of total anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and thus present a still underestimated driver of climate change. To date, little is known about grassroots initiatives dedicated to reducing and preventing FLW and thei...

The Association between the Regular Use of ICT Based Mobility Services and the Bicycle Mode Choice in Tehran and Cairo

Mostofi, Hamid ; Masoumi, Houshmand ; Dienel, Hans-Liudger (2020-11-25)

Regarding the sharp growth rate of ICT (information and communication technology)—based mobility services like ridesourcing, it is essential to investigate the impact of these new mobility services on the transport mode choices, particularly on active mobility modes like cycling. This impact is more important in the MENA context (the Middle East and North Africa), where cycling does not constit...

The Relationship between Regular Use of Ridesourcing and Frequency of Public Transport Use in the MENA Region (Tehran and Cairo)

Mostofi, Hamid ; Masoumi, Houshmand ; Dienel, Hans-Liudger (2020-10-02)

Despite the growing share of ridesourcing services in cities, there is limited research about their impacts on other transport mode choices in the large cities of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). There is a debate about whether ridesourcing affects the frequent use of sustainable modes like public transport. This study uses the results of a large-scale series of face-to-face interviews ...

Digitalization and the Decoupling Debate: Can ICT Help to Reduce Environmental Impacts While the Economy Keeps Growing?

Santarius, Tilman ; Pohl, Johanna ; Lange, Steffen (2020-09-11)

Digitalization can increase resource and energy productivities. However, the production and usage of information and communication technologies (ICTs) require materials and energy, and the application of ICTs fosters economic growth. This paper examines whether digitalization helps or hinders an absolute decoupling of environmental throughput from economic growth. The paper combines the literat...
