INTERSECTION:

A cross-national research project about intergenerational justice, consumption and sustainability

imageINTERSECTION is a multidisciplinary arts and social research partnership between the Universities of Sheffield and Leeds, looking at the things people buy and use and their attitudes to environmental conservation across time and space. This research is taking place with people of all ages in mid-sized cities in China, Uganda and the UK. We are using a range of different research methods, including interviews, a cross-national survey, public discourse analysis and intergenerational theatre, to explore different generations’ consumption aspirations and their understanding of responsibility for environmental problems.

This project is funded by an Arts & Humanities Research Council Care for the Future grant.
