Despite a recent commitment to invest heavily in child and adolescent mental health services in the coming fiscal year, the UK government has not undertaken a survey of children's mental health since 2004. Extant literature focuses narrowly on specific mental health conditions or risk factors; a broader picture of children's mental health in the UK is needed.
If sensibility is the ability to grasp and to respond, how might we articulate the (in)sensibilities of contemporary technoscience?

As socio-technical transitions unfold under the influence of energy concerns, our domestic environment changes. Scholarship on sustainable consumption and production has focused on how socio-technical transitions affect various practices of households and what this means for their energy demand. However, the basic locus of analysis, namely the domestic environment, has received little critical social consideration . This is remarkable considering that home, and the emotions associated with the domestic environment, have become a core symbol of Western culture.
