What are sustainable Lifestyles? How is this notion perceived and interpreted in the different socio-cultural and economical contexts worldwide?

The United Nation Environment Programme and the Swedish Task Force on Sustainable Lifestyles took the initiative of launching a Global Survey on Sustainable Lifestyles addressing online young adults under 30.
SDS was in charge of building a range of sustainable solutions for food, mobility and housekeeping suggesting different scenarios for sustainable living. Short animated narratives based on comic stripe style drawings to facilitate readibility from any culture were included at the chore of the questionnaire to stimulate the interviews.
More than 8000 youths took part and universities from 20 countries worldwide analysed their contributions.
