    Abstract

    The paper reports on research in progress. An interdisciplinary four-year study is presented that aims at reaching consumers who are hardly interested in the topic
    of sustainable development and to educate and motivate them to become more sustainable consumers. At its core, the study measures the effectiveness of a TV program that tries to communicate options in sustainable consumption and production in an entertaining, emotionally positive, and fascinating way (“sustainment”). The preliminary results show that viewer-consumers do not shy away from such a difficult topic if the communication style fits with their expectations. Moreover, spin-offs such as a print magazine, a service-oriented website, and podcast offers have the potential to transform passive viewers into more active information seekers and eventually sustainability” followers”.
