In this session we will present preliminary results of a mix-method pilot study to better understand how young people in the UK are navigating the transition into a more sustainable society. Different drivers behind young people’s energy use and saving will be approached in the session based on focus groups and survey data specifically designed to investigate the effects of environmental education and eco-schools in preparing young people for environmentally-friendly life-styles.

The CEBRG is an interdisciplinary research group on environmental education and energy-saving behaviours in young people. It is being led by Dr Hilary Cremin from the Faculty of Education, Dr David Reiner and Dr Michael Pollitt from the Judge Business School as well as Dr Michelle Baddeley from the Faculty of Economics. Dr Pablo Souto and Dr Elpida Makrygianni joined the team as research associates to work with schools and key stakeholders. The results of this research project will generate elements to discuss the role of education as well as other factors in the transition to sustainability.

This talk is part of the Education, Equality and Development (EED) Group Seminars series.
