Abstract: In this project a new methodological approach for sustainability evaluation was being developed - explicitly designed for the demands and the consumer habits of adolescents. The method was implemented as a web tool, where users were able to evaluate different consumption sectors based on the three pillars of sustainability: economic, environmental and social impacts.
