A team from DIT’s Environmental, Sustainability and Health Institute (ESHI) have secured funding from the Environmental Protection Agency – Ireland (EPA) under the EPA’s Research Sustainability Pillar to explore ways to gain a better understanding of the values and motivations that influence sustainable consumption behaviour in Irish society. The work will address core societal values with regard in particular to their intrinsic as well as extrinsic dimensions and address the consequences of this in terms of a framework for citizen empowerment, governance and sustainable policy development in the drive for a new environmental paradigm.
