PSLifestyle Living Lab Ljubljana - Co-Creating a Good Life for All

Did you know the average Slovenian consumes almost 90kg of meat every year? We have to start talking about the sustainability of our everyday choices and take actions.

Circular Change together with the team from City of Ljubljana organized the first two sessions of the PSLifestyle project Living Lab Ljubljana, engaging the invited changemakers on the newly started journey of co-creating a good life for all – within our planetary environmental boundaries!  The sessions took place on May 25th and May 30th at the inspiring location of the City Museum Ljubljana.

More than 50 participants had a chance to socialize over a great (vegetarian!) lunch, get to know the project and its goals, get to know each other and discuss in groups their vision of sustainable lifestyles, their thoughts, ideas, actions as well as barriers they recognize in the areas of living, mobility, food and other consumption in Slovenia.

During the opening presentations the project was introduced, as well as broader context of the activities. Introduction of the average carbon footprint of the Slovene citizen and the shares of individual areas gained a lot of interest of the participants. The project partners introduced the Motivation profiles of clusters of citizens and the Pathways different profiles can take to make more sustainable choices and achieve their personal goal towards the global goal of lowering and minimizing the CO2 emissions.

Besides co-defining visions of good life in Slovenia, our exchanges during the lab meetings are contributing to the creation of the PSLifestyle tool – an online tool that helps us become aware of our environmental impact and supports making changes to our day-to-day behaviours.

During the second session of the Living Lab, the prototype app of the PSLifestyle tool/carbon calculator was tested by the participants. Their valuable feedback was collected through the gallery walk – on the visuals and user interface side, and the content track – for the contents of the questions, answers and results of the calculator.

The feedback will help the project team dedicated to the tool development to implement improvements that would create a better and user friendly, well localized version of the app for the autumn roll-out.

We are looking forward to our next sessions in September and October when we will co-design solutions and every day actions that address sustainable challenges and increase our share of sustainable living as well as talk about barriers that could make the implementation of those solutions difficult and opportunities that could speed up their wider roll out.

The PSLifestyle Living Labs are part of the EU funded project PSLifestyle – ‘Co-creating a positive and sustainable lifestyle tool with and for European citizens’. Circular Change in collaboration with the Municipality of Ljubljana, are among the 16 European partners delivering the project.
