About the Global Network:
We are a global platform of practitioners and experts that come together around the joint commitment to
enabling more sustainable lifestyles.
The Global Network on Sustainable Lifestyles seeks to inspire decision-makers, stakeholders and the public to think differently about how to enable more sustainable ways of living. Co-creating new stories of our sustainable future, envisioning and designing the future we want are central to this work. We believe that visualizing possible futures helps us to create those futures.
The GNSL offers a platform to:
The network is built on the principles of:
- Communicating and Translating
Practices of sustainable lifestyles made accessible and understandable from the social, economical and environmental perspectives, thus “speaking the language” of the different social actors. Our principle of innovative thinking for communicating hotspots and impacts on/of lifestyles, helps to hone skills towards solution creation and engagement.
- Enabling cross-pollination and action
The network facilitates linkages between disciplines, cultures, and practice. Through virtual and live collaboration, the GNSL enables the connection of organizations and individuals to achieve more sustainable living for all and with a method that seeks to advance sustainable living further, faster, together.
- Developing, implementing and sharing
The GNSL provides tools and methodologies to make sense out of abstract concepts and ideas. We hope that the openness of the network will allow new forms of interaction between participants, enabling a ripple-effect of actions in communities and society at large.
