New report on lifestyle concepts in different fields of research

Maureen Agnew, Hazel Pettifor and Charlie Wilson (Tyndall Center for Climate Change Research, University of East Anglia, UK) recently published a report on Lifestyles in Public Health, Marketing and Pro-Environmental Research.

In this report they synthesise insights from 82 conceptual and empirical studies of lifestyle from four main research fields: general lifestyle studies; public health; marketing and consumer behaviour; pro-environmental behaviour and climate mitigation (termed ‘low-carbon’). The first four sections cover each of these fields. The final fifth section draws out similarities, differences and lessons learnt. It concludes with some insights to strengthen future-oriented scenarios and modelling of low-carbon lifestyles.
