Project Details

Financing body

WU anniversary foundation


Agriculture is one of the biggest human-made factors influencing nature. With an increasing urban population, also the Viennese people are having an increasing impact on the environment through their food consumption. In order to reduce the negative consequences this consumption has for the environment, a change in behavior is necessary.

The objective of this project on the one side is to determine what the Viennese consumption pattern of organic, regional and meat food products is currently. This information is the pretext to the main purpose, which is to find the main factors that are influencing the Viennese population in adopting a more sustainable food consumption behavior. In order to obtain these data, for each of the three factors this project conducts a survey based on the theory of planned behavior among the Viennese population.
