About The Project

The PSLifestyle project aims to deeply engage with and mobilise citizens in eight European countries to close the action gap between climate awareness and individual action. PSLifestyle supports data-driven momentum for sustainable behaviour change in Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Slovenia and Turkey.

PSLifestyle will equip citizens to adopt a positive, sustainable, and healthier lifestyle by guiding their consumption behaviour to drastically reduce their carbon footprint. The project’s co-creative Citizen Science Lab approach is designed to foster citizens’ active engagement in localised sustainability topics to co-develop and commit to everyday life solutions that address climate change. Citizens engage through a new online tool, which includes a carbon footprint calculator, a personalised list of climate-friendly actions, and tools to collect, monitor and analyse environmental and socio-economic data on actual behaviour.

The PSLifestyle project’s ambitions are to:

  • Build an innovative behaviour change and citizen science online tool that enables people to participate in generating personal sustainability data, while learning about personalised sustainable lifestyle choices.

  • Orchestrate eight local Citizen Science Labs that contribute to and promote the PSLifestyle tool development as well as generate a list of customized smart actions (Smart Everyday Actions).

  • Create and share the PSDataSet with relevant data blocks on major lifestyle areas, to enable further research and policy design beyond the project.

  • Build awareness to inspire and equip European citizens to adopt lasting behavioural patterns for sustainable and healthy lifestyles.
