Sustainable Lifestyles

This program seeks to understand the world that we need to create — technically, practically and emotionally — to enable and inspire more sustainable lifestyles.

Efforts to promote sustainable consumption often focus either on incremental product improvements or single points of behavior change. However, products are used within existing infrastructures and use can account for greater impacts than production.

Sustainable lifestyles will require more than improvements to existing product portfolios. By looking at where we live, how we move around and what we eat, we can explore solutions at a systemic level, considering products, infrastructure, technology, business models, behaviors and aspirations.
