Dagens livsstilar i framtidens perspektiv
Summary, in English
Most difficult are transformations which have consequencies for several spheres of life, effects for other members in the household and lead to reorganising everyday life routines and time scedules. Nevertheless such changes are asked for and urgent from long term environmental perspectives. Reduce going by private cars in favor of using public transportation is one example of reconsidering patterns of behaviour and lifestyles. In the report individuals´ choice of mode of transportation, travelled distances, energy use for transportation and impacts on the environment are analysed in relation to age, sex and income variables. The differences in aspects of travelling between social groups are important for aspects of environmental impact. For the years 2020 and 2050 patterns of travelling and environmental impacts are calculated which in a hypothetical way takes behavioural and technical changes in consideration. The calculated examples shows that a theoretically discussed level of sustainablitity for transportation is a challenge for individuals as well as for society.
