This brief introduces a framework for understanding the factors that determine lifestyle choices. The framework can help to identify entry points for policies and measures that promote more sustainable lifestyles. The framework, called Attitudes-Facilitators-Infrastructure (AFI), was developed under the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP) Programme on Sustainable Lifestyles and Education.
