    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to explore the quantitative potential to reduce energy requirements and CO2 emissions through changed patterns of consumption, given unchanged levels of consumption expenditure. The thesis question is analysed using a systems analysis approach which in this case means that life cycle assessment data on energy requirements and CO2 emissions related to household consumption are combined with a financial and behavioural analysis to make sure that the budget constraint is kept and that both the first and second order effects of adopting a green consumption pattern are analysed.

    Abstract : Physical activity (PA) is a complex, multidimensional human behaviour that includes all bodily movement from fidgeting to participation in marathon running. The detailed relationship (i.e. dose - response) between the type and degree of PA and its effects on various aspects of health remains to be elucidated, not least in young people. READ MORE
