SPREAD About the Project


Help Shape the Future European Research on Sustainable Lifestyles!

Thursday, 2012-08-02

Do researchers pay enough attention to factors that make our societies viable? Are there any good suggestions for how we can transform our current, unsustainable lifestyles to less resource-intensive ones? The SPREAD Sustainable Lifestyles 2050 project is currently developing a research agenda which will show the most important sustainable lifestyle topics that researchers should be working on in the future. You can help to shape the agenda!

We would like to ask for your support in finding the answers to the following future research questions:  

1. Which gaps do you see in research around sustainable lifestyles?
2. Which subjects should policy makers focus on in the future? What might  be overlooked at the moment?
3. Are there promising  practices that should be studied, such as new collaboration models, local currency systems, or alternative transport methods?
Your answers will be incorporated in the SPREAD project research agenda, which will be finalized by November 2012. The first draft will be presented to EU policy makers on October 2nd in Brussels. Please visit our SPREAD online community and post your answers there.
