SHARECITY were delighted to host Diana Ivanova from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, a participant in the EU project GLAMURS: Supporting Green Lifestyles in June 2018 to give us a Sharing Lab on her experiences with assessing the impact of grassroots initiatives on household consumption patterns. Like SHARECITY, the GLAMURS project adopts a systems approach and Diana’s work included researching the impact that bottom-up networks with an overarching agenda of social and environmental well-being (grassroots initiatives for brevity) can have with respect to reducing carbon emissions and increasing well-being. This work followed on from examination of the carbon footprinting of households across the European Union and details of that household-level research are documented through papers and the GLAMURS website. Through a one-time survey including lifestyle satisfaction questions, the goal of this initiative-facing research was to explore whether people who are engaged with grassroots sustainability organisations report lower household consumption patterns than those who do not.
