Education for Sustainable Consumption, Behaviour and Lifestyles
The resolution adopted by the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) on 15 March 2019, “invites all Member States and relevant stakeholders, as appropriate, to design and implement public policies, plans and programmes that support education and raise awareness of the importance of sustainable consumption, sustainable lifestyles and sustainable consumer behaviour, and those that develop related skills for academia and the private sector, including the financial sector”.
The publication presents a collection of successful case studies to spark innovative ideas from educational centres, decision makers, stakeholders as well as citizens and to promote the adoption of sustainable actions. In addition, this work intends to inspire the aforementioned groups to take environmental action to decrease the impact of their current lifestyle. Accordingly, this booklet focuses on five main areas: housing, mobility, food (nutrition), leisure and consumer goods.
