To combat climate change and achieve the Paris Agreement goals, political action is crucial. Societal changes are just as important. The EU-funded FULFILL project will explore the contribution of lifestyle changes and citizen engagement in decarbonising Europe and fulfilling the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Bringing together research institutes, academia, think-tanks and NGOs, the project will engage in an inter- and transdisciplinary dialogue between social science and humanities as well as techno-economic energy and climate studies. By examining sufficiency lifestyles, it will identify their intended and unintended consequences, enablers and barriers, as well as impacts on the individual/household and community/municipal level to determine routine behaviours that can lower energy demand and emissions and at the same time contribute to well-being.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101003656.
