In this article, we highlight the importance of personal competencies for sustainable consumer behavior, such as self-reflexivity/self-awareness, emotional resilience, the willingness and ability to motivate oneself, and knowledge of and the ability to mobilize one’s psychological resources. We suggest two new learning formats that allow students to systematically acquire such competencies: self-inquiry-based learning (SIBL) and self-experience-based learning (SEBL). We developed these approaches at Leuphana University Lüneburg, Germany, and applied them within the framework of two seminars called Personal Approaches to Sustainable Consumption. Conducting scholarship of teaching and learning, we empirically investigated the potential of SIBL and SEBL for cultivating personal competencies for sustainable consumption. Our results indicate that SIBL and SEBL are promising approaches to achieve this purpose. View this paper
