Experiences on projects promoting sustainable lifestyles in Nordic countries

Sustainable Consumption is a focus theme in the Environmental Action Plan 2009-2012 of the Nordic Council of Ministers. As stressed in the Plan, the Nordic countries form a joint market with the same product range and similar patterns of consumption. Hence, the countries can together contribute to developing environmentally adapted production meth-ods and stimulating the interaction between environmentally conscious consumptionand an environment oriented product range. This report presents 22 different projects, realized recently in the Nordic countries, that have promoted sustainable life styles.

Hide / Show Abstract

The mitigation of climate change creates huge demands on the lifestyles of individuals. Many people in Nordic countries are conscious of environmental issues and willing to change their behaviour in order to be ecologically sustainable. Governments are committed to emission reductions and they produce and provide information on the environmental problems as well as direct and indirect policy tools for promoting sustainable lifestyles.
