It’s possible to have conflicting goals such as wanting to be sustainable, but taking the car to work to get there more quickly and be more productive – this is how pursuing one goal can interfere with others. New research by Ioannis Evangelidis of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) and co-authors Jordan Etkin (Duke University) and Jennifer Aaker (Stanford University), shows interfering goals make customers feel time-constraint. Therefore, they appreciate time-saving products and services more – and are more willing to spend money to save time.

Urban lakes are transformed into ecosystems different from the known natural wetlands and the traditionally constructed lakes, which has made the governance complex and the lake sustainability uncertain. This is one of the outcomes of the PhDthesis ‘Social-Ecological System Framework. Understanding urban lake governance and sustainability in India’ by Mansee Bal. The patterns of interaction and outcome of lake system characteristics show that the complex problems and processes of governance and sustainability are here to stay, says Bal. With better understanding, the lake governance and sustainability problems can be reduced and delayed. She defends her thesis at Erasmus University Rotterdam on Friday 20 February 2015.
