SCORAI Europe is an international network that brings together people from multi-disciplinary backgrounds with a shared interest in research and action around sustainable consumption.


SCORAI Europe aims to support a community that contributes forward-thinking, innovative research in the area of sustainable consumption, while also fostering links between academic research, teaching, policy and practice. SCORAI Europe cooperates closely with the European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP) and with SCORAI Global, as well as other research networks that are focused on the challenges of addressing the society-environment nexus from a consumption perspective.

“SCORAI Europe brings together scholars and activists through a broadly shared normative dimension around sustainable consumption, but is not disciplinarily bound. This makes the network feel different from other networks, and makes it a key international network.”

Dan Welch, Sociology and the Sustainable Consumption Institute, University of Manchester

“The conferences are great, and I really appreciated the initiative to make local hubs to avoid unnecessary air travel”

Tullia Jack, Aalborg University
