The Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative (SCORAI) is a knowledge network of professionals working at the interface of material consumption, human well-being, and technological and cultural change. It aims to foster a transition beyond the currently dominant consumer society.
SCORAI provides a forum for scholars and practitioners striving to understand the drivers of the consumerist economy in affluent technological societies; to formulate and analyze options for post-consumerist lifestyles, social institutions, and economic systems; and to provide the knowledge for emergent grassroots innovations, social movements, and public policies.
The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) aims to mobilize global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical problem solving for sustainable development, including the design and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Following their adoption, the SDSN is committed to support the implementation of the SDGs at local, national, and global scales by stimulating the working together of various actors in a global network.
The ARGA is a proud partner society of the SDSN, with the aim to partake in the practical problem solving for sustainable development.
