Achieving the policy and practice shifts needed to secure ecosystem services is hampered by the inherent complexities of ecosystem services and their management. Methods for the participatory production and exchange of knowledge offer an avenue to navigate this complexity together with the beneficiaries and managers of ecosystem services. We develop and apply a knowledge coproduction approach based on social–ecological systems research and assess its utility in generating shared knowledge and ac...

We conceptualise a framework that incorporates psychological and non-psychological factors influencing pro-environmental behaviour. We conducted qualitative investigations in five sectors in South Africa, where individuals and groups are dealing with significant environmental issues, including climate change, biodiversity loss and land-use change. We found three fundamental elements necessary for behavioural change to be realised: awareness (A) is defined as an understanding that society and ear...

Increasing levels of the unsustainable use of natural resources have been widely reported. In this paper we argue that engaging private sector corporations to address environmental risks is crucial to solving many of the key environmental challenges humans face. We investigate the enabling conditions under which private sector corporates act to reshape their business. To explore the nature of these enabling conditions we build on conceptual framing drawn from organizational theory and apply this...

Portals have garnered more attention than virtually any other Internet technology over the past year-partly because of Wall Street’s mania over Excite, Infoseek, Lycos, and Yahoo. Some have gone so far as to call portals the next generation of desktop computing, saying that portals will do for global knowledge-work what the railroad did for the industrial revolution.

Measuring response to consumer generated advertising is, for a variety of reasons, difficult to do using traditional advertising measures. In this paper we present an approach to better understanding response to consumer generated advertising. Using the comments posted about four consumer generated advertisements hosted on YouTube, we demonstrate how content analysis can be conducted on this information so as to reveal the underlying brand personality dimensions contained within the discussion. ...

The age of social media sees that brands are consciously utilizing social media to reach existing customers, acquire new ones, establish credibility, maintain reputation, or simply become part of the conversation. Those who manage brands need to understand the strategic importance of their visibility, the sentiment toward them, and the passion with which they are discussed in the most popular social media relative to competitors. This study describes a source of data of brand visibility in socia...

The cost of extreme weather events, resulting from climate change, has increased by 37 per cent per decade since the 1980s (Mills, 2009). This has raised serious questions about the financial sustainability of the insurance industry and, indeed, about its future role as the world’s risk manager, prompting the industry to begin to reflect on how it might better manage the impacts of climate risk in the future.

Brand personality has often been considered from the perspective of products, corporate brands or countries, but rarely among service offerings. Moreover, there remains the consideration of how these entities are communicated online. This article explores the brand personality dimensions that business schools communicate and whether they differ in putting across clear and distinctive brand personalities in cyberspace. Three clusters from the Financial Times' top 100 full-time global MBA programs...
