A radically new consumption – What could climate commitments imply?

Sweden may become the first country in the world to have a consumption-based climate target. This would include emissions both in Sweden and abroad that are caused by Swedish consumption.

But what kind of consumption is compatible with climate commitments? What will we eat? How will we travel?

In the webinar there will be presentations from several studies that focused on consumption patterns in different countries that are compatible with climate targets. Differences and similarities between the studies and their results will be presented. Possible policy implications will be discussed in a panel. The unanimous suggestions from the Swedish all-parties committee on environmental quality objectives will also be presented.

EU 1.5° Lifestyles project leader, Doris Fuchs (WWU, Germany) and EU 1.5° Lifestyles researcher Oksana Mont (Lund University, Sweden) will be part of the panel discussion: What can these major consumption changes lead to?
