Enabling Sustainable Lifestyles in a Climate Emergency

May 9, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm UTC+2

The IPCC report is clear that we must address demand-side emissions in order to reduce our impact on the planet. UNEP’s new Policy Brief Enabling Sustainable Lifestyles in a Climate Emergency offers insights on what forces shape our lifestyles as well as what enabling and supporting policies – such as choice editing – can help governments and businesses kick start the transition to sustainable lifestyles.

This event delves into how we can change how we consume and explore how sustainable living can enable circularity. Policy makers recount how and why some policy strategies have been successfully (or less successfully) implemented. We also explore the positive externalities of health and well-being that can be achieved when we address environmental issues.
