ESRC Research Group on Lifestyles Values and Environment

RESOLVE is an exciting collaboration located entirely within the University of Surrey, involving four internationally acclaimed departments: the Centre for Environmental Strategy, the Surrey Energy Economics Centre, the Environmental Psychology Research Group and the Department of Sociology.

Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council as part of the research councils’ energy programme, RESOLVE aims to unravel the complex links between lifestyles, values and the environment.

In particular, the group will provide robust, evidence-based advice to policy-makers in the UK and elsewhere who are seeking to understand and to influence the behaviours and practices of ‘energy consumers’.
