The contribution of ICT towards the development of sustainable lifestyles and consumption patterns, within an increased Quality of Life, can be realised primarily through a transversal functional integration that makes sense from the standpoint of the individual user or community of users.

ICT research has to take into account the user-oriented rather than domain-oriented approach. The single functionalities of different scenarios will never have any impact on environmental sustainability until people actually use them as a routine part of their daily lives. ICT can have an active role in that transformation.
