ReZeitKon (German acronym for Time Rebound, Time Prosperity and Sustainable Consumption)
is an inter- and transdisciplinary research and development project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
It aims to empirically analyze and quantify the significance of time-rebound effects for the sustainability of consumption.
ReZeitKon is carried out by the Technical University of Berlin (Department of Applied Sciences/Economics and Sustainable Consumption (ALÖNK)) in cooperation with the Leuphana University of Lüneburg (SuCo2 Working Group at the Institute for Environmental & Sustainability Communication (INFU)) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI, Karlsruhe).
The project is supported by an advisory board comprising prominent representatives of relevant civil society institutions who have vast experience with the relationship between the use of time and natural resources in the domains of work, education and consumption.
