Linking Local Consumption to Global Environmental Impacts

This is a closed meeting for a funded synthesis group of visiting scholars.

The goals of this workshop are to further refine and focus research and engagement strategies to:

  • create a collaborative network, involving researchers and NGOs, for developing a common framework addressing global trends in consumption and production, and how consumption and production impact the environment and society;
  • calculate the main environmental indicators (ecological, carbon and water footprints) for various scenarios;
  • synthesize local to global datasets and perform analyses on trade-offs and win-win strategies towards a low carbon future;
  • provide knowledge brokerage through providing research-based evidence to different stakeholders;
  • to determine the most appropriate topic and subset of participants from the overall pool for each workshop; and
  • identify target audiences and how best to present outcomes from the proposed project.
