Author bio: Sylvia Lorek is Chair of the Sustainable Europe Research Institute Germany e.V and Member of SUCH. She is working on studies and as consultant for national and international organisations and institutes and active in various national, regional and global networks on sustainable consumption. She holds a Ph.D. in consumer economics based on degrees in household economics and nutrition (Oecotrophologie) as well as economics. The combination of these two disciplines provides her with the tools - the individual micro-economic and the societal macroeconomic perspective - for a well-founded analysis of the contexts, in which the scientific and societal discourses about sustainable consumption take place.
