"The principal aim of our Sustainable Lifestyles Research Group (SLRG) is to develop new and relevant understandings of the processes which lead to changes in people’s lifestyles, behaviours and practices; and to offer evidence-based advice to policy-makers about realistic strategies to encourage more sustainable lifestyles.

"Our core funding is provided jointly by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Scottish Government. Additional funding for individual projects has been won from the European Commission and from the ESRC.

"The research programme of the SLRG is coordinated from the University of Surrey [CES] under the direction of Professor Tim Jackson. Ian Christie is the Research Coordinator. Our partners include the University of Bath, Edinburgh University, the University of Sussex, the Institute for Fiscal Studies and Brunel University. We also work closely with non-academic partners including Peterborough City Council, the RSA and the United Nations Environment Programme." [1]
