This project is similarly interdisciplinary, and looks to understand what insights from the social sciences can be used to inform our understanding of future water demand challenges. Could it be heat-driven water demand that dominates the future of consumption, or escalating standards of cleanliness? Active travel in low-carbon cities or relaxed dress-codes as a result of working from home? A mixed method futures studies that explores what wide-ranging datasets can tell us about the possible challenges that could face the sector in future. https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/a-social-practice-perspective-on-future-water-demand-challenges-in-england-2040-and-2050/?p146565
