Sustainable Society

To make our society sustainable, fundamental changes in consumption practices and supply systems are needed. Central to this endeavor is the question of how lifestyles within realms like mobility, housing, nourishment, and leisure, as well as engagement with green spaces, can evolve toward greater sustainability. Our exploration into the realms of the “Sustainable Society” is firmly rooted in the very fabric of everyday routines that underpin the fulfillment of needs. By “everyday practices,” we denote the ingrained behavioral templates that pervade our society – often governed by habit and largely overlooked in the course of ordinary life. For example, we analyze starting points and potentials, but also obstacles and limitations with regard to a change in CO2-intensive everyday practices in the areas of housing or eco friendly mobility.
