Watch now: Simonetta Carbonaro on how consuming less can make you happier
What are the economic and emotional benefits of consuming and producing less? How can the power of words be used to preserve a country’s beauty and natural resources? What does the combination of a glockenspiel, saw, violins, drums and a laptop sound like? This week we’re excited to debut videos from a musical group and two presenters who took the stage in PopTech Iceland last month: an Icelandic five-piece band, a consumer psychologist, and an activist poet.
First up, a talk from Simonetta Carbonaro, a consumer psychologist who encourages us to think differently about consumption. She reminds us that a consumer-hungry outlook for cheaper and faster is outdated, and that we now know that consuming and producing less, in fact, creates more jobs, more free time, and more happiness.
