How can we enable sustainable living in the Nordic region? How can we better understand how differences in lifestyle arise? This is the focus for the project Sustainability, lifestyles, and consumption from a gender perspective. The project is part of the Sustainable lifestyles in the Nordic region programme. The project is implemented by Nordic Information on Gender, NIKK and the project owner is the Nordic Committee of Senior Officials for Gender Equality and LGBTI.
The project aims to examine differences in women’s and men’s lifestyles and consumption in the Nordic countries. By analysing sustainability and lifestyle from a gender perspective, the project contributes to improving understanding and opportunities for sustainable consumption. The project is based on the themes included in the cross-sectoral programme’s various sub-projects and contributes to meeting goal 4 in the Nordic Council of Ministers’ action plan for “Our Vision 2030”.
The project can be linked to several of the goals in Agenda 2030: In particular to the sustainable development goal (SDG) 12 on consumption and production and target 12.8 to increase the public’s knowledge of sustainable lifestyles. The project also links to SDG 3 on health and well-being, SDG 4 on good education, SDG 5 on gender equality, and SDG 8 on decent working conditions and sustainable growth.
