Join us in supporting Isabel Pacheco’s research on circular consumption

18 October 2023

Isabel Pacheco, PhD Candidate, is seeking participants for her university research on circular consumption. We invite you to be a part of this exciting study.

What's the Research About?
We're interested in understanding the reasons behind people's pro-environmental behaviors, and why some choose to engage in them while others do not. Specifically, we're exploring behaviors related to mobility (like car ownership and car sharing), housing (including sharing living spaces and household appliances), and the use of online trading platforms such as Marktplaats or Vinted.

Who Are We Looking For?

We need participants who engage in all of these behaviors, who engage in some, as well as people who engage in none of them.

Why Participate?
Your insights will contribute to a broader, multinational research project called CircEUlar. The results from these interviews will be combined with data from Germany and Italy to shape a comprehensive questionnaire for next year.

What to Expect During the Interview:
- Discussion on what motivates your engagement (or lack thereof) in these behaviors.

When and Where:
We're flexible! Interviews can be scheduled at your convenience over the coming weeks and will take around an hour. You can choose to meet at the University of Groningen, another location that suits you, or conduct the interview online.

How to Get Involved
If you're willing to share your experiences and motivations with us, please reach out to Isabel Pacheco at i.m.pacheco rug.nl.

Your participation will greatly contribute to our understanding of pro-environmental behaviors. Join us in making a positive impact!

Research conducted by the Environmental Psychology team at the University of Groningen. Ethics Code: PSY-2324-S-0002.
