Sustainable Ways of Living Issue Brief Series: Creating and Sharing Values of Sustainable Living through Bridging Diverse Types of Knowledge and Skills
The Sustainable Lifestyles and Education Programme aims to foster the uptake of sustainable lifestyles as the common norm. Through a global network of experts, practitioners and learners the SLE programme develops tools and resources that allow policy makers, businesses and civil society to build sustainable systems of living.
Through the application of these resources and the uptake of sustainable lifestyles the SLE programme aims to address global challenges such as biodiversity conservation, resource efficiency, climate change mitigation, poverty reduction and social well-being.
The SLE programme is co-led by the Ministry of Environment of Japan and the Government of Sweden, represented by the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) respectively. A Multistakeholder Advisory Committee and large network of partners on the ground are working on the concrete implementation of projects.
