Meet our Researchers
Lucie K. Ozanne
Lucie is an associate professor of marketing at the University of Canterbury in the Department of Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship. Her primary research interest over the past 20 years has been devoted to examining the impact of consumption behaviour on the natural environment and possible initiatives to mitigate that impact. However, in exploring alternative grassroots consumption systems, her research has begun to take a different path. In particular, her work examining sharing behaviour through the use of community toy libraries and the potential for individual and community capacity development through the use of time banks has extended her focus beyond environmental sustainability – to issues related to the family and the wider community. Recent research has examined the Lyttelton time bank as a builder and mobiliser of community capacity during the Canterbury earthquakes.
