Patricia Eustachio Colombo is a doctoral student at the Department of Global Public Health, Karolinska Institutet. Her research revolves around exploring relationships between food systems, the environment and health mainly through optimization analyses and intervention research. She is also involved in research where she models the health and environmental impacts of dietary changes on a population level. Furthermore, Patricia is contributing to the development of a common research programme between Karolinska Institutet and Makerere University in Uganda, with focus on critical health challenges within the overall framework of the SDGs.

Anders Rhiger Hansen is a senior researcher in sociology at Aalborg University in Copenhagen. His previous research has focused primarily on households’ energy consumption practices and energy ‘prosumption’, but he is also engaged in discussions on theories of practice and sustainable consumption.

Arve Hansen is a postdoctoral researcher at Centre for Development and the Environment, University of Oslo. He has a PhD in Human Geography and approaches consumption at the intersections between systems of provision and everyday practices. He coordinates the Norwegian Network for Asian Studies, and much of his research has focused on Asia, mainly Vietnam, studying changing consumption patterns (mainly transport and food) in processes of rapid development. The coming years will see him focus more on Norway through projects on meat (MEATigation 2020-2024) and sustainable consumption (Include, 2020-2027). Contact: and website

Jesse Schrage is a Doctoral fellow at the Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation at the University of Bergen, Norway. Before starting his PhD, his research focused on translating the commitments enshrined in the Paris Agreement into local-level targets, and aimed to understand more specifically what these deep emission cuts meant for cities and municipalities in Scandinavia. In his PhD, his work builds on this previous work is concerned with the overlap between city-level policy making and everyday consumption, along with the political feasibility of stringent climate measures.  Contact:

Carolin Zorell is postdoctoral researcher in Political Science at Örebro University, working in the University’s interdisciplinary Food & Health program. Her research interest is in the preconditions and dynamics of political consumerism, with special reference to food consumption and sustainability. Currently, she studies how contextual arrangements, self-perceptions and peer-group influences (e.g., through talk, imitation) form non-sustainable vs. sustainable consumption. In her research, she connects insights from Political Science, Psychology, Sociology and Economics and combines different quantitative and qualitative methods, including surveys, observation studies, and experiments.
