Q

What evidence of ‘eco-citizenship’ do you find in your everyday life? Do you think that ‘eco-modernization project’ that Hobson (2006)   highlights has been successfully permeating and spreading in our community? – e.g. GreenHome Programme in NSW   Question 2 Eco-citizen World Map Project states…  “75% of the citizens consume very high environmental resources. If the rest of the Earth holders consume with the same amounts, Earth will not fulfill their demands, they’ll need 3 or more Earth planets to consume” Would you classify yourself as an eco-citizen or “75%” who consume “very high environmental resources”? How often and to what extent do you prioritize ecological concerns in your daily consumption of products/services?   Question 3 What will be the most difficult challenge for you to become an ‘eco-citizen’ and/or sustain your consumption of ‘eco-efficient’ products/services? E.g. – a solar hot water service, using compact fluorescent bulbs, etc.   [Hobson (2006) suggests that promoting ‘Techno-ethics’ and increasing the use of ‘eco-efficient technologies’, may require sacrifice of convenience, change of habitual behaviours, and proactive, yet, self-motivated attitudes.]
