Abstract
In general patterns of lifestyles and behaviour are involved in a complex of factors and social circumstances which easily get lost in analysing the relation between attitudes and behaviour separately. In processes where behaviour are expected to change in a direction where environmental impacts are considered social factors should not be neglected. Even small changes in behaviour have to be coordinated with social measures organised in a way that make change as ”subjectively convenient” as possible for the individual or the household. In the analysis aspects of behavioural change ranging from sheer resistance to change, changing habits, planning behavioural change or reconsidering lifestyle changes are discussed in relation to different...

In general patterns of lifestyles and behaviour are involved in a complex of factors and social circumstances which easily get lost in analysing the relation between attitudes and behaviour separately. In processes where behaviour are expected to change in a direction where environmental impacts are considered social factors should not be neglected. Even small changes in behaviour have to be coordinated with social measures organised in a way that make change as ”subjectively convenient” as possible for the individual or the household. In the analysis aspects of behavioural change ranging from sheer resistance to change, changing habits, planning behavioural change or reconsidering lifestyle changes are discussed in relation to different kinds of measures and the degree of dependence on structural as well as organisational factors in a society.



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. (Less)
