Understanding Overconsumption – Symbolic and Spatial Transgressions in Public Places

Overconsumption refers to harmful or excessive consumption. This study demonstrates how experiences of overconsumption are constructed in transgressions of boundaries within places. Results are supported by a study of citizens’ experiences of tourism-consumption in touristified cities. They underscore the importance of considering experiences of overconsumption practices for sustainable consumption.
