“Consumption-oriented sustainability policy cannot replace production-related regulatory measures, but rather supplement them in a variety of ways. Through my interdisciplinary work at adelphi, I keep an eye on the wishes and needs of citizens and can help prepare the ground for the urgently needed, profound changes to our lifestyles.”
