Biography: 

Daniel Fischer is an assistant professor at the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University. In his research and teaching, Daniel casts an educational perspective on the question of how sustainable consumption can be promoted through communication and learning. He uses inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to understand how consumption patterns evolve and change. Daniel has a strong interest in how innovative teaching and learning strategies like mindfulness, storytelling or citizen science can increase reflexivity in learners and - in an educational tradition - help us reshape our relations to the consumer societies that we have been born, encultured and socialized into in the industrialized world.

Research Group: 

SuCo2 is an interdisciplinary research group at Arizona State University and Leuphana University Lüneburg.

We focus on the role of consumption in satisfying human needs, investigate into its social and ecological impacts, and explore new ways how human beings can be encouraged and enabled to take up more sustainable alternatives.

Our interest lies in the analysis of how different formats of communication and learning can help to achieve this aim.

Our research is driven by the broader motivation to advance more responsible ways of living in contemporary society.
