1. Does nationality matter in eco-behaviour among consumers?

factors – by critically reviewing articles discussing these factors among consumers from different countries. For your critical argument, refer to the
articles below and other current articles (2013 and upwards). Remember there might not be a clear-cut answer in the literature.

According to PWC, the 3D Printing industry is predicted to grow significantly from around $2.5b in 2013 to $16.2bn by 2018. Printers are getting faster and more affordable and the key industry players have invested a great deal in R&D. As some patents have expired, the global open-source has also made some refinements and improvements and widened the appeal and adaptation of 3D printing technology. Like the Internet, digital and e-commerce environment of the 1990’s, it appears that the 3D printing sector is gathering pace to produce one of the most potentially
disruptive technologies of the 21 st century. While the 3D printing industry has slowed, it is undergoing significant changes and global corporations outside the industry are also considering entering in the future because of the huge potential.
According to the 3D Systems case study, 3DS has made over 30 international acquisitions by 2014 (16 in 2011 alone). Other sources claim 3DS has now accumulated as much as 50 acquisitions by 2015 1 . There is strong evidence of consolidation in the 3D printing industry and 3DS have demonstrated a very aggressive acquisitions culture. According to AT Kearney the next natural evolution in a globalising industry like 3D Printing is merger strategy.
Critically discuss whether a leading company like 3DS should now consider a merger strategy 2 or seek an alternative way to consolidate and grow its global 3D printing business.

We want you to write an essay because we believe essays are effective ways of using a range of research to help you unpack your ideas, and what you think about them, in a rich amount of valuable detail.
In this essay, you need to combine one idea from the first section of the unit (weeks 1-3) with one idea from the last part the unit (weeks 7-10). For example, you could connect ideas about race with those of AI or machine learning; or you could connect ideas about platforms with violence. Don’t worry: we will explain in class in week 12 what we mean by “connecting ideas.”
It is important that you do your own research here to explore these connections. The material we cover in class, in lecture content and in readings, will offer you a good starting point only.
It will be worthwhile revisiting the materials on the Communication Academic Literacy website and the library’s excellent guides on doing research and finding appropriate resources. The library also has excellent guides on academic writing and information and guides on how to reference correctly.
