A working group of 15 individuals applied the concept of the Imperial Mode of Living to various categories of need (such as transportation, communication, food, amongst others).
The project group consists of students, PhD candidates and activists alike who will collaborate over the course of one year.
The result of the process has been published as the book "Auf Kosten Anderer? Wie die imperiale Lebensweise ein gutes Leben für alle verhindert".
The project was led by Dr Thomas Kopp (University of Goettingen.
