Over the years, I have become increasingly involved in activist efforts to help individuals and society move away from materialism & consumerism and towards more intrinsically satisfying pursuits that promote personal well-being, social justice, and ecological sustainability.
Many of the papers that I've written have touched on these topics.
I also teach a course on Alternatives to Consumerism that touches on many of these topics.
