The Center for a New American Dream conducted a national survey last year on attitudes about wealth, sharing, materialism, and more. What they found suggests some important shifts in America’s consumption patterns and a strong foundation for a more sustainable approach. This webinar will explore these survey results and how they compare to similar polling on issues of well-being, climate change, and consumption. Center for a New American Dream Executive Director Wendy Philleo will highlight how the survey informs the work of her organization and what it suggests for future initiatives. Wendy will be joined by Tom Bowerman from PolicyInteractive, the research non-profit organization that conducted the survey. PolicyInteractive has been mapping public opinion on these topics for several years, and Tom will provide a comparative context within which to view these most recent results.
