LOW-CARBON COMMUNITIES AS A CONTEXT FOR INDIVIDUAL BEHAVIOURAL CHANGE

April 3, 2009

This article analyses different types of emerging low-carbon communities as a context for individual behavioural change. The focus is on how these communities offer solutions to problems in previous attempts to change individual behaviour. On the basis of an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of various community solutions, implications are drawn for further research and for the design and support of low-carbon communities.
