Abstract [en]

The consumption of air and car travel is a major sustainability issue in industrialised countries. What happens if people abstain from car-ownership? Will they miss out on enriching experiences?

In the study, 141 adolescents (age 12-16) were interviewed, in a strategic sample allowing comparisons between car-owning and car-less households.

Contrary to expectations, the car-less adolescents engaged in as many organised leisure activities as their peers from car-owning families. A large majority of the adolescents had a country vacation last summer, fewer a ski vacation. On the whole, the adolescents from car-less families had more sustainable travel patterns with relatively minor differences in enriching experiences.
