Municipality approaches to citizen support in sustainable fashion consumption

Research output: Book/ReportReport


In recent years, many Swedish municipalities have taken actions and initiatives to support citizens to more sustainable textile and fashion consumption. This study seeks to, on one hand, describe more advances of such initiatives, what actors in municipalities, affiliated organizations, and collaboration partners that initiated the actions. Another aim is to investigate existing government policies related to sustainable fashion consumption that influence the initiatives and actions at municipal level.

The work is based on a combination of approaches: review of municipality reports and meta-studies on relevant municipal initiatives and interviews on specific measures with officials that have been involved in textile and fashion related actions. Literature was also reviewed on policy measures and influences that can have initiated the activities on sustainable fashion consumption at municipal levels.
