How to close the intention-action gap, or in other words, move from thinking to acting for more sustainability? This was the leading question behind the work of the project “weiter_wirken”, a training and networking programme that the CSCP carried out in collaboration with the Stiftung Umwelt und Entwicklung Nordrhein-Westfalen and ecosign / Akademie für Gestaltung during 2020 and 2021.
As part of our 15th year, we are deep diving into four key topics, including digitalisation, to explore how we can enable positive impact right now towards more sustainability and a good life for all. We were curious how our sustainable lifestyle (SL) team works on digitalisation at the intersection of behaviour change towards more sustainability. To find out, we interviewed Rosa Strube, Head of SL Team to discuss its potential. Read the full interview here.

This VALUMICS report analyses and provides insights to the latest and most compelling pieces of evidence about behaviourally-informed interventions that support a shift towards more sustainable and healthier diets. These are presented according to the behaviour approach they are based on and implemented in real life contexts as well as the type of behaviour they address and the opportunities for action. The discussed behavioural approaches are: simplification and framing of information, changing default options to more sustainable ones, mainstreaming sustainable food, employing favourable external stimuli, and finally changing the physical environment of sustainable food items.
Call for Collaboration
The most vulnerable, and therefore the hardest hit by the Corona pandemic are developing countries. There, due to high levels of informality, lack of infrastructure, and poorer living conditions, the effects of the pandemic are felt way more severely. We must, therefore, enhance our international collaboration to support these countries not only in overcoming the present crisis, but also in strengthening their resilience for the future.
If you are interested in collaborating with the CSCP, the Co-Working Space might be the right starting place for you. We are happy to share our Co-Working Space with you again as of 2022. To find out more, please contact Ramon Külpmann.
