My name is David Wingate and I’m currently working on my Masters dissertation, provisionally titled: ‘How do we change culture? Transitions from consumer culture to anti-consumerism’.
I would very much like to speak with people who consider themselves 'voluntary simplifiers' or who lead a non-consumerist lifestyle.
I'm currently based in the north of England, and if anyone lives nearby I'm happy to travel to where you are. Otherwise, wherever you are in the world, I'd be glad to meet you over Skype (or something similar).
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
PS. In case anyone is curious, I'm studying for an MSc in 'Sustainability: Environment and Development' at the University of Leeds. My main research interests are sustainable consumption and consumer culture.
