What is the future consumer culture like in relation to investments and capital? The various talks during this day will result in a Burenstam edited anthology on trends in 2015.

“Rurbanization and The Neogreen Consumer”, 250 Möjligheter, Jönköping

Thisl conference problematizes urbanization as fact and discourse; that 250 of the Swedish municipalities are losing their young (18-25 years) inhabitants to the cities. Is this urbanization an inevitable and unstoppable fate inherent in a globalized market economy? Can we see other tendencies? This day I will talk about the “neogreen consumer” as an example of such tendencies. Even if s/he doesn’t stop the powerful forces of urbanization the neogreen consumer successively nuances and directs new positive attention towards rural and “rurban” life.

“Gröna Idéer”, Dunkers Kulturhus, Helsingborg

What characterizes today’s and the future’s consumer? What is s/he occupied with, locally and globally, and how does this influence the large environmental, social and ethical challenges we are up against?
