Abstract: Highlighting the important role that the lifestyles can play for the pursuing of the well-being sustainability, this article focuses on the internet as a fundamental tool for the promotion of sustainable behavioural models. In particular, the internet plays a fundamental role in determining the so-called Sustainability Empowerment because it can improve the reference to a sustainable food lifestyle, guiding the visitors, for example, to new patterns of food behaviour most functional to the maintenance of their health, of the environment or economically more convenient.

Keywords: sustainability empowerment; wellbeing sustainability; shared social responsibility; internet; food behaviour; lifestyles; sustainable well-being; public health.
