Stockholm Environment Institute is representing the Government of Sweden in its capacity as co-lead, supporting coordination of the programme’s overall implementation, reporting, information sharing and external communication.
Activities within the SLE Programme mobilize scientific knowledge, emanating from both natural and social sciences, to build capacities as well as to promote the development, replication or scaling-up of effective approaches and initiatives for sustainable lifestyles.
Realistic and tangible scenarios for sustainable lifestyles will be developed, including hotspots analysis, to support decision-making and investments, and will be used as training material to build capacities among decision-makers.
Life cycle thinking has proven to be an effective driver for the shift towards sustainable lifestyles, through increasing consumer and citizen awareness of the consequence of their choices, or through supporting decisions about creating products, services and developing communities that are more sustainable. These approaches will be embedded in many activities under the programme, including education activities.
