Sustainable Consumption: Political Economy of Sustainable Food

Sonja Amadae, Maija Harju, Ruta Jumite, Juuso Kortelainen, Marianna Laine, Shreya Sood, Sonja Sorri

Research output: Book/ReportBookProfessional


The theoretical structure for this textbook were developed over the 2 years of the ATARCA project. We worked to develop a means to mitigate the environmental tragedy of the commons associated with climate change. We diagnosed that two problems to be solved are (1) the negligible impact each individual makes on the global atmospheric commons, and (2) the worry that others will not do their part in making sustainable choices. As well, individuals may not have perfect information about the impact of their consumptive choices. The ATARCA research project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
