In this paper, we employ original data from a survey carried out in the summer of 2020 on an online sample of the UK population (1013 respondents) to investigate if, in the dramatic scenario caused by the recent pandemic, a new approach toward a more sustainable lifestyle has emerged in this Country. Our results indicate that, on average the individuals in our sample are not very convinced that the recent pandemic could be an opportunity to rethink our lifestyles in a sustainable way. Considering socio-demographic groups, We find that young individuals, predominantly female individuals and those with an elevated title of study, tend to perceive Covid19 also as an opportunity for a new approach toward sustainability.

Abstract

In this paper, we employ original data from a survey carried out in the summer of 2020 on an online sample of the UK population (1013 respondents) to investigate if, in the dramatic scenario caused by the recent pandemic, a new approach toward a more sustainable lifestyle has emerged in this Country. Our results indicate that, on average the individuals in our sample are not very convinced that the recent pandemic could be an opportunity to rethink our lifestyles in a sustainable way. Considering socio-demographic groups, We find that young individuals, predominantly female individuals and those with an elevated title of study, tend to perceive Covid19 also as an opportunity for a new approach toward sustainability.
