Prof. Ruth Mugge
Ruth Mugge is a professor in Design for Sustainable Consumer Behavior at Delft University of Technology. Her main research interests are (sustainable) consumer behavior, product perception, design for behavior change, and design for the circular economy.After completing her PhD on the topic of product attachment in 2007, Ruth Mugge continued her research on understanding consumers’ acceptance and behavior towards (sustainable) products with the intention to provide designers with guidelines on how to design products that trigger the desired inferences and behavioral responses. She has received both European and national (NWO) funding for her research.
In this keynote, prof. Ruth Mugge will present how a Circular Economy requires changes in our consumption pattern. In a Circular Economy, individual consumers will need to interact differently with their products and perform new behaviors, such as maintaining and repairing durables and reusing packaging of fast moving consumer goods. It is unlikely that consumers will change their behaviors spontaneously. In the lecture, Ruth Mugge will elaborate how design can help in bringing about these behavior changes.
