Citizens as consumers have a profound effect on how we shape society. The daily choices we make and how we design our lives are directly linked to how we use resources and impact ecosystems across the globe. Consumption is the main driver of economic growth while increasing consumption is also the main cause of global challenges we face today.  

To reduce consumption's negative climate and environmental impact, we must change how and what we consume. But how do we get there? How can consumption be made more sustainable? What can be done to make it easier for consumers to make climate-smart choices? What is the role of young people as agents of change?
