    Collaborative housing and environmental efficiency: The case of food preparation and consumption2004In: International Journal of Sustainable Development, ISSN 0960-1406, E-ISSN 1741-5268, Vol. 7, no 4, p. 341-352Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In theory, food handling in collaborative housing systems could have a number of environmental advantages compared with households and food service institutions. This paper explores to what extent some of these theoretical advantages are realized in two collaborative housing units in a major Swedish city. Food-related energy use and waste flows were measured and compared with results from food service institutions and some data relevant for households. Results show that energy use for cooking decreases in collaborative houses compared with households but energy use for food storage increases. Plate and food preparation wastes are low in the studied collaborative houses but food leftovers may be abundant. The latter result depends on how the dining system is organized. A bottleneck for improving the environmental efficiency in collaborative housing is the static view of apartment design held by many architects and real estate owners. Another bottleneck may be the unwillingness of households to make advance commitments to daily dining.

    Research as a Tool for Change?: Towards a methodology for action-oriented environmental research, learning from case study methodology and action research2006In: International Journal of Sustainable Development, ISSN 0960-1406, E-ISSN 1741-5268, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 1-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In many studies on environmental sustainability, research is combined with initiating action. This approach differs from the more traditional natural-sciences view of research. However, the potential problems of the action orientation are seldom reflected upon. The aim of this paper, is to discuss pitfalls as well as possibilities and to propose a methodology for action-oriented Environmental Research. Comparisons with methodologies for Action Research (AR) and case studies are made. Experiences from a previous study on environmental practice in two Swedish residential areas are also used. The results of the discussion indicate several problems, and some of these could be overcome.
