Sustainability in lifestyles is closely connected to the change of every day patterns of individuals and their approach towards food and consumption, mobility and transport, housing, education, health and recreation with strong cross-linkages with communities and interpersonal relationships. Lifestyles also relate to cultural heritage as well as specifics of natural and economic environment. Hence, sustainability in lifestyles is also determined by the surrounding environment, not only personal needs.

This policy brief presents and reviews a Top-10 list of sustainable research priorities for Europe and a Top-12 list (five research priorities received the same voting score) for Denmark. These priorities have been formed in systematic interaction with citizens and experts. In Denmark: 1. Sustainable construction of buildings; 2. More green in cities; 3.
