Formatted abstract Purpose
The current paper addresses a number of key questions relating to the sustainability of Australian households. It explores:
1. What are household waste/water/energy attitudes and practices?
2. How waste/water/energy attitudes and practices have changed over time.
3. What factors have driven changes in household waste/water/energy attitudes and practices?
4. The relationship between householders’ waste/water/energy attitudes and practices (i.e., behaviour) and whether the relationship varies according to SES, household type, tenure or behavioural domain.
5. The most effective ways of shaping positive change in household waste/water/energy perceptions and behaviour and what are the costs and benefits of these approaches for stakeholders?
