Values and Sustainability Research and Enterprise Group
A core focus of the Values and Sustainability Research Group is designing values-based approaches within a variety of different contexts. The group understands ‘values’ as people’s judgements about what is important or meaningful in their lives (Oxford English Dictionary, 2014). The group's research uses in-situ shared human values as a lens for investigating different perspectives on current issues in society, new measures for society, business and organisational studies, and environmental sustainability.
The group's work draws on shared values concepts from multiple disciplines including environmental sciences, education, design, development studies, and organisation studies, but takes it a step further by providing a rigorous approach for defining and developing measures for shared values by focusing on intersubjective authority and defining values through values-based indicators.
In collaboration with project partners from the voluntary sector, businesses, universities, schools and faith-based organisations, the group has successfully applied this principle to design values-based approaches for a variety of contexts and purposes.
