Sponsored by The Sustainable Consumption Research and Action Initiative (SCORAI) and the Urban Sustainability Director’s Network (USDN), this workshop was a unique opportunity to examine what action cities can take to promote sustainable consumption at the community scale. The workshop was attended by Vanessa Timmer, Bill Rees, Jennie Moore, and Rosemary Cooper on behalf of One Earth / Cities for People who also participated in early design of this workshop and are active in the follow-up documentation and working group. The workshop idea originated at the meeting of the North American Roundtable on Sustainable Production and Consumption (NARSPAC).
