Abstract

The proposed paper discusses the sustainable efficiency and quality of Slovenian neighbourhoods in the Mediterranean region of Karst with the focus to the sustainability awareness and travel habits of their residents. The empirical study was carried out as an empirical pilot of the broader theoretical research project dealing with the modular urban renewal. The empirical survey (n = 112) refers to the typical patterns of behaviour, convictions and habits in relation to everyday activities condensed around the notion of dwelling and their impact on the social and natural environment. This article focuses on certain, geo-locally and thematically-referenced results brought about by the survey, with highlighted attention to the residents of the Komen municipality and their mobility patterns. The results of the survey contribute to the repository of knowledge, enlightening current trends and tendencies regarding sustainable behaviour of the residents of specific Mediterranean regions and coastal regions. From the perspective of the existing available data at the level of neighbourhoods (or similar spatial scales), the results, although thematically selective, represent a welcome contribution, not only for the evaluation of sustainable efficiency, but also in terms of the perceived quality of living by the residents of this region, their attitudes and opinions towards some of the contemporary issues in the local and temporal context.
