EveryDay Environment


Detailed description of the Good Practice

12 families from Sundsvall are participating in a project during the autumn 2001 to test different measures for an improved environment.
One family is to conserve energy, several are to compost and sort their waste at source. One family is to eat more environmentally sound food (more vegetarian, more game and lamb), another family will purchase more locally-grown and ecological products.
One family will learn eco-driving, another will cycle to work instead of taking the car etc.
The families have volunteered to participate in the project and they will receive information and support from a variety of experts. Every family will keep a diary of how they feel about the changes that environmental adaptation involves as well as noting successes and setbacks.
During the project the families will be interviewed about how they feel about their environmental undertakings and their experiences will be evaluated.
