    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för samhällsstudier (SS)

    Author : Elin Petersson; [2021]
    Keywords : Sustainable development; individual perceptions; pro-environmental consumption; pro-environmental behavior; diffusion of innovations; Hållbar utveckling; individuell uppfattning; miljövänlig konsumtion; miljövänligt beteende; innovationsspridningsteori;

    Abstract : Consumption is a major contributor to environmental harm, and also one area where the Swedish performance is in urgent need of improvement. While it is well known that changes are needed on all societal levels for sustainability to be realized, it is unclear whether the population is aware of which changes that refers to, since the impacts from individual consumption remain high.
