Transforming lifestyles: Food choices, changing behaviours, and spillover effects
Environmental Psychology Research and Study Group hosted a regular online seminar on May 13, 2021. Dr Caroline Verfuerth, Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations, Cardiff University, presented results of her doctoral research: Transforming lifestyles: Food choices, changing behaviours, and spillover effects.
Dr Verfuerth’s presentation included results of a behaviour change intervention on meat reduction at a company canteen. As part of her research, Dr Verfuerth conducted semi-structured interviews with intervention participants – the company employees. At the seminar she discussed different spillover effects, their mechanisms and factors that influence behaviour spillover. During discussions with seminar participants, theoretical and practical implications of the research were considered.
