As a part of the SPREAD Sustainable Lifestyles 2050 project, this report provides a synthesis of research, leading policy and practice, and stakeholder views on potential pathways toward sustainable lifestyles. The purpose of this report is to provide the necessary background information to support the SPREAD social platform participants in creating a holistic vision of sustainable lifestyles in 2050 and recommendations for a plan of action. Because of the significance of housing, transport, food, health and society, this report focuses on these key domains. It aims to better understand the relationships between lifestyles, the conditions that frame those lifestyles, and the resulting sustainability impacts in Europe today and into the future. In addition, it identifies promising practices from across Europe that have the potential to be examples of sustainable ways of living of the future. Existing visions, scenarios and roadmaps for more sustainable futures – from policy, research, business and civil society perspectives – are also examined in detail.
