Abstract
This seminar at Princeton University’s Climate Futures Initiative explores the concept of wellbeing as an opportunity and positive driver of climate change mitigation. Reducing material consumption is crucial to achieving the low carbon transition but surprising little is known about how or if this could be achieved? State of the art in understanding the problem is explored, and a new concept of ’MAXWELL’ to maximise wellbeing and minimise emissions is offered in response.
