The "Dialogue & Action Platform for Sustainable Consumption and Production" is organised by the CSCP and will take place in Wuppertal on 16th - 18th of March 2009.
The objective of this conference is to provide a platform for actors that are engaged in SCP issues in order to enhance their involvement and their cooperation in this field. Different actors – civil society organisations as well as researchers – will come together and have the possibility to exchange their ideas, to generate new ones and to formulate possibilities of implementation. This space for discussion and participation will enable them to identify research needs, to target future cooperations and to increase their impact on other actors like private households, political institutions and companies.
The target groups of the conference are civil society organisations, researchers and policy makers interested in and working with sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and sustainable lifestyles. The Conference programme is lively, interactive and participatory. It includes the following topics and workshops:
The conference is linked to two ongoing projects co-ordinated by CSCP: CSO Platform on SCP (http://www.scp-dialogue.net) and Action Town – Research and Action for SCP. The conference is organised together with REC Hungary (Regional Environmental Center), SERI (Sustainable Europe Research Institute), WWF-UK (World Wide Fund for Nature), ANPED (Northern Alliance for Sustainability), SEI (Stockholm Environmental Insitute) and CfSD (The Centre for Sustainable Design).
