A consumer citizen is an individual who makes choices based on ethical, social, economic and ecological considerations. The consumer citizen actively contributes to the maintenance of just and sustainable development by caring and acting responsibly on family, national and global levels.
See a video of Victoria W. Thoresen discussing consumer citizenship. The video was recorded in 2009 by a group of Japanese law professionals visiting Hedmark University College in Hamar, Norway. (coming soon)
