Over the last several years I have worked especially closely
with three activist groups whose goals overlap substantially with the
ideas expressed in my scholarship. I’m on the board/steering
committee of the Campaign
for a Commercial-Free Childhood and the Center for a New American Dream.
I’ve also worked extensively with the UK group Common Cause
to apply psychological research on values to increase the effectiveness
of the campaigns and communications of civil society organizations.
In addition to these three organizations, I also find the work of the following groups to be particularly important and relevant to issues concerning materialism, consumerism, and corporate capitalism.
Gross National Happiness
Happy Planet Index
Move to Amend
new economics foundation
No Impact Project
Take Back Your Time
Many of the papers that I've written have touched on these topics.
I also used to teach a course on Alternatives to Consumerism that touches on many of these topics.
