Abstract: The REDUCTIONS project is designed to identify the potential for absolute resource and energy use reduction of production-consumption systems at all levels and to explore ways to realise this potential. While lots of ideas about reductions are made only few concrete examples of achieved reductions are documented. The REDUCTIONS project intends to fill this gap. It combines the analysis of current trends of consumption, targets for the reduction of resource use and stocktaking of reduction cases with the development of a theory of social change towards a global living within the limits.
