Study for the German Federal Environment AgencyNew ConPolicy project on youth participation and sustainable consumption

In recent years, sustainability policy issues have become increasingly relevant in social and political discourse. The commitment of young people is a major driver of this development. However, the behavior of many young people is simultaneously characterized by ambivalence: They understand that everyone must make a contribution to greater sustainability. However, this conviction is not always sufficiently reflected in their own consumer behavior.

Against this background, the Federal Environment Agency commissioned ConPolicy together with IKU_Die Dialoggestalter and Tippingpoints to conduct this research project. The project aims to create a scientific basis for further activities in the field of participation-oriented and transformative research, participation, information offers or campaigns for young people in the area of sustainable consumption.
