How we get around, what we consume, how we live – our behaviour and our decisions shape our environment. This booklet invites you, as a student at the University of Bern, to think about what you need for a good, satisfying life. It follows the sufficiency approach, which emphasizes wealth in time and space over wealth in goods and money. In chapters titled Sustainable development, Getting around, Eating & drinking, At home, Conscious consumption, and Culture & events we have gathered together useful facts, ideas, and tips. In the city of Bern, there are numerous innovative stores, eateries, organizations, and associations that are committed to promoting a sustainable lifestyle. You will find a selection of them in the following pages. And while some of the links lead to German-only websites, most people in Bern speak two or three additional languages, so don’t let the German deter you from getting in touch. (Many of the references are in German, too – but note that Swiss sources are often also available in French, and sometimes in Italian.)
