  3. 3. Kyungeun Sung, Sustainable Consumption Research Group, School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment A normative concept  Physiocentric ethics: How human beings should act collectively towards nature  Intra-generational justice: How they are responsible for each other  Intergenerational justice: How they are responsible for future generations (Baker, 2006; Baumgärtner & Quaas, 2010; Derissen, Quaas, & Baumgärtner, 2011; Norton, 2005) 1. Conception of sustainability Image source: http://www.digitalpicturezone.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Beautiful-Pictures-of-Nature-and-Animals.jpg; http://www.live58.org/Portals/209485/images/congo%20poverty.jpg; http://news.fiu.edu/wp-content/uploads/ist2_4688926-sisters-from-around-the-world.jpg
  4. 4. Kyungeun Sung, Sustainable Consumption Research Group, School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment 2. Conception of sustainable development Development that:  “meets the needs of present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (Brundtland et al., 1987, p.41)  “meets fundamental human needs while preserving the life-support system of planet Earth” (Kates et al., 2001, p.641)  ”creates and maintains prosperous social, economic and ecological systems” (Folke et al., 2002, p.437) Image source: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-9c_Mk4eL51c/UhVfWyS79OI/AAAAAAAACho/TUXcFixfFoU/s1600/environment+(1).jpg
  5. 5. Kyungeun Sung, Sustainable Consumption Research Group, School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment 3. Sustainability/sustainable development in my research Economy Society Environment Reducing materials and energy consumption Saving money for individuals, and job creation with new SMEs Creative, ethical, happy consumers in households Upcycling Reducing carbon emissions 80% from 1990 levels by 2050  Mitigation of climate change for:  Preservation of nature (physiocentric ethics)  Quality of life for everyone now (intra-generational justice)  Quality of life for everyone in the future (intergenerational justice) Landscape Regimes Niches Scaling up of upcycling for bigger impact on the environment and society Scaling up of niches to regimes through niche-cluster and niche-regime, adapted from Van den Bosch (2010)
  6. 6. Kyungeun Sung, Sustainable Consumption Research Group, School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment Gain insights into upcycling in the UK, paying special attention to product attachment and longevity Adapted framework from Darnton’s Nine Principle’s framework (Darnton, 2008) 4. Approaches to the study Identify UK-specific key drivers for and barriers to upcycling Formulate policy and design interventions for scaling up upcycling
  7. 7. Kyungeun Sung, Sustainable Consumption Research Group, School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment 5. Contribution to sustainability sciences  Transdisciplinary nature of sustainability science (Kajikawa, 2008)  Dealing with three major sustainability-related research domains: climate + energy and resources + lifestyle (ibid)  Three components of sustainability science: 1) goal setting: scaling up upcycling in households and beyond in the UK; 2) causal chain analysis: behaviour factor analysis; and 3) forecasting: semi-Delphi study results (ibid)  Provide knowledge and guidance for actions (Baumgärtner & Quaas, 2010) Design Policy Psychology Sociology Sustainability science (core) Energy and resources Lifestyle Climate
  8. 8. Kyungeun Sung, Sustainable Consumption Research Group, School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment 6. Contribution to sustainable development Economy Society Environment Reducing materials and energy consumption Saving money for individuals, and job creation with new SMEs Creative, ethical, happy consumers in households Upcycling  Meeting the UK climate change target (80% carbon emissions reduction by 2050)  Preservation of nature (physiocentric ethics)  Quality of life for everyone now (intra-generational justice)  Quality of life for everyone in the future (intergenerational justice)
