Abstract

In recent years, there have been three questions which concern me: 1) how and why have our everyday lives become so resource intensive?; 2) why are current resource intensive patterns so persistent despite efforts to instigate change?; and 3) how might these trends be shifted, so that our patterns of everyday life are more sustainable? These questions form the starting point for this short article, in which I present some recent thinking from the social sciences, which has made headway in tackling these questions. I then build on these ideas, to point out some themes which future research might fruitfully explore.
