Thank you everyone for your helpful and enthusiastic attitude. I originally thought the interviews would only be an interesting nuance in this work, but it seems that they will form the bulk of the references. That's better, more than I could hope for, because this will really a study of culture and psychology.

Also, it's really difficult to find scientific references about the self-sufficiency, eh, "trend" (not sure what expression to use, English is not my native tongue). There are articles from magazines and papers and I might use some of those also.

My deadline is almost too tight, so I'm not sure how this will end. But I'll keep you updated.

Good luck Markus - I hope we'll be very useful. I know my reply wasn't very scientific, but I think that's par for the course - I guess being green isn't so much a science as an attitude! :mrgreen:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

I'll gladly help if you still need volunteers!

When you're writing an essay in a language that you're not native to, you can usually get a native-speaker to read it through and correct basic errors - this is only usually not allowed if it is your command of the language that they are examining.

I'll be away from the internet this week so I can't post any questionnaires until Friday... but if there's still someone who's interested in helping, please pm me.

One important thing I forgot... if you answered the questionnaire, could you please pm me about your nationality and where you live now? Of course its voluntary but that would be useful information. Thanks.
