This paper discusses the preconditions for applying the Sustainable Lifestyles Accelerator’s webtool in a large number of countries. On the basis of the first round of the project, different countries’ characteristics in terms of households’ preferences and mindsets, as well as political, infrastructural and private sector’s ability to enable sustainable lifestyles were analysed and compared. The results show that there can be huge differences not only in terms of affinity and connectedness to web-based solutions but also in terms of mindset towards reducing lifestyle footprints to a sustainable level, trust in different institutions, and the ability of other stakeholders to enable sustainable lifestles. The paper concludes with a set of prerequisites to be taken into consideration when planning a web-based platform like the Sustainable Lifestyles Accelerator.
