From Sustainable Lifestyles towards Social Change

Sustainable consumption is mindful consumption: The brochure illustrates how sustainable consumption can be realised on all levels and how to balance out the "overall footprint". The first chapter identifies aims and areas where there is a need for action, along with measures the German government has already initiated to address sustainable consumption. It illustrates that sustainable consumption is a real possibility but that there are still obstacles to be eliminated. The second chapter explores the principle of sustainability and develops key ideas for a sustainable consumption policy.
