Description/Abstract

Developing a low carbon society will require significant transformations of everyday lives. Academic and policy actors have suggested that third sector organisations (TSOs) can play an important role in the transition to a low carbon society. Whilst there is some empirical evidence that third sector organisations can successfully encourage changes in everyday practices, their role is not yet well understood. As part of the TSRC programme of research, our aim is to better understand the potential contribution of TSOs. This paper reviews different conceptions of behaviour and practice change and provides an overview and analysis of the literature on the role of TSOs in promoting change. We then offer a social practice framework that will guide empirical research into the types of interventions undertaken by TSOs and the different barriers that confront change
