Sustainable Lifestyles in the 21st Century
The network activities centre on the theme of sustainable consumption and its global challenges of the 21st century. One important challenge is to introduce and keep sustainable consumption on the political agenda to induce long-term changes. One promising avenue could be to intertwine sustainable consumption with other existing global challenges such as public health. Current consumption patterns are related to public health challenges such as the increasing prevalence of obesity. Hence, framing sustainable consumption as a public health challenge could be one promising avenue for future research. The planned network activities will explore how to tackle the present and future global challenges of sustainable consumption and identify pressing key research questions.
