In this article, we describe a practical implementation of a serious game to facilitate knowledge acquisition about renewable energy technologies among youngsters, using the game Serena Supergreen and the Broken Blade. We present the quest design and an evaluation study on the research questions: (a) Did youngsters who played the game have more knowledge about renewable energy technologies comp...

Sustainability empowerment in the workplace: determinants and effects

Harrach, Christoph ; Geiger, Sonja ; Schrader, Ulf (2020-08-17)

There is a dynamic stream of research, which examines why and how employees contribute and respond to corporate social responsibility (CSR). Building on these micro-CSR findings, this article makes a contribution to a better understanding of employee engagement in CSR by considering its determinants and effects. 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...

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...

Social Innovations for Sustainable Consumption and Their Perceived Sustainability Effects in Tehran

Iran, Samira ; Müller, Martin (2020-09-17)

Against the backdrop of current sustainability problems, various social innovations for sustainable consumption are emerging across the globe. In order to explore the sustainability potentials of such initiatives, it is vital to understand (1) why consumers are accepting and joining these initiatives and (2) how they perceive the sustainability potentials of initiatives’ offers. In order to cor...

Achtsamkeitstraining in der Schule: Ein Weg zu nachhaltigerem Konsumverhalten bei Jugendlichen?

Böhme, Tina (2020)

Aktuelle Forschung deutet darauf hin, dass die Implementierung von Achtsamkeit in die Bildung für Nachhaltige Entwicklung (BNE) bzw. Nachhaltigen Konsum (BNK) das Potential haben könnte, die Wirksamkeit der BNE/BNK zu stärken und nachhaltiges Konsumverhalten (NK) zu fördern. Zudem sind positive Effekte achtsamkeitsbasierter Interventionen im Bildungskontext allgemein sowie für Jugendliche, welc...

Education for sustainable consumption through mindfulness training: conceptualization and results of an intervention study

Stanszus, Laura Sophie (2020)

It is understood amongst research and policy makers that addressing unsustainable individual consumption patterns is key for successful sustainable development. Despite this knowledge and increasing awareness about this fact in the general population, little has been achieved to substantially change behavioral patterns so far. As a result, a call for a more competence-based approach has been ma...

Environment-Specific vs. General Knowledge and Their Role in Pro-environmental Behavior

Geiger, Sonja Maria ; Geiger, Mattis ; Wilhelm, Oliver (2019-04-02)

Environmental knowledge has been established as a behavior-distal, but necessary antecedent of pro-environmental behavior. The magnitude of its effect is difficult to estimate due to methodological deficits and variability of measures proposed in the literature. This paper addresses these methodological issues with an updated, comprehensive and objective test of environmental knowledge spanning...

Mindfully Green and Healthy: An Indirect Path from Mindfulness to Ecological Behavior

Geiger, Sonja M. ; Otto, Siegmar ; Schrader, Ulf (2018-01-18)

This paper examines the nature of the link between mindfulness and ecological behavior. Based on the notion that mindfulness incorporates heightened awareness of bodily sensations, we suggest an indirect path from mindfulness to ecological behavior that is mediated through individual health behavior, such as improved nutrition and increased exercise. This indirect path is corroborated with two ...

Mindfulness Training at School: A Way to Engage Adolescents with Sustainable Consumption?

Böhme, Tina ; Stanszus, Laura S. ; Geiger, Sonja M. ; Fischer, Daniel ; Schrader, Ulf (2018-10-04)

A central challenge in research on education for sustainable consumption (ESC) is to develop new approaches to engage adolescents with sustainable consumption (SC) in a way that addresses not only the cognitive but also the socio-emotional and behavioral levels. Mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) that foster awareness, (self-)reflection, and ethical values could potentially leverage learnin...

Transforming Consumer Behavior: Introducing Self-Inquiry-Based and Self-Experience-Based Learning for Building Personal Competencies for Sustainable Consumption

Frank, Pascal ; Stanszus, Laura Sophie (2019-05-02)

Despite growing educational efforts in various areas of society and albeit expanding knowledge on the background and consequences of consumption, little has changed about individual consumer behavior and its detrimental impact. Against this backdrop, some scholars called for a stronger focus on personal competencies, especially affective–motivational ones to foster more sustainable consumption....
