    Sammanfattning

    Finnish university students (n = 198) assessed their attitudes and
    achievements in implementation of sustainable development in their daily life.
    The data were collected using a theory-grounded semantic differential
    technique. A measurement instrument was created by balancing 36 variables
    of environmental, economic and social sustainability. As a result of logistic
    regression analysis post-material behaviour was predicted statistically
    significant by the following attitudes: health-promoting lifestyle, recycling,
    organic food, water saving, maintaining of civil society, favouring eco-labelled
    products and services, and favouring renewable energy resources.
    These themes are discussed in the paper and a model of sustainability
    promoting social change is created.
