Abstract [en]

Every day we face numerous lifestyle decisions, some dictated by habits and somemore conscious, which may or may not promote sustainable living. Aided by digital technology,sustainable behaviors can diffuse within social groups and inclusive communities. This paperoutlines a longitudinal experimental study of social influence in behavioral changes towardsustainability, in the context of smart residential homes. Participants are students residing inthe housing on campus referred to as KTH Live-In Lab, whose behaviors will be observedw.r.t. key lifestyle choices, such as food, resources, mobility, consumption, and environmentalcitizenship. The focus is on the preparatory phase of the case study and the challengesand limitations encountered during its setup. In particular, this work proposes a definitionof sustainability indicators for environmentally significant behaviors, and hypothesizes that,through digitalization of a household into a social network of interacting tenants, sustainableliving can be promoted.
