Warde, A. & Southerton, D. (2012) ‘Introduction’, in Warde, A. & Southerton, D. (eds.) The Habits of Consumption, COLLeGIUM: Studies across Disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences, Volume 12, Helsinki: Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, pp. 1-25.

This volume arises from a Symposium ‘Social sciences and sustainable consumption’ held in April 2011 at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies.1 The Helsinki Symposium built, in turn, upon a series of seminars, ‘Alternative approaches to sustainable consumption’, held at the Sustainable Consumption Institute2 of the University of Manchester in 2008. At the core of these events was a concern to understand the consequences of habitual behaviour for the sustainability of contemporary patterns of consumption.
