Everyday practices

This work package explored questions concerning the organization of everyday life and social practices. “Sustainable lifestyles” have often become equated with use of new technology, consuming ecological products, recycling and using public transport.

However there is also a growing body of practices and research on sustainable living with little economic means. The work package explored the everyday practices in terms of forms and sizes of housing, ownership, access to resources, participation, use of private, shared or public space and forms and levels of consumption.

The work packages also explored perspectives and implications for different societal groups and what this meant in terms of (re)distribution of power and resources. Literature reviews were conducted in the case study areas, and specifically amongst societal groups that have faced economic decline.

The work package was led by Karin Bradley, KTH. A PhD student will also be enrolled and involved.
