On 27 August 2019, EPOMM (European Platform on Mobility Management) published its latest e-update on the topic of 'nudging behaviours in urban planning and policy making'.
The theme is described as follows:
In urban planning, we already design for the utility and convenience of the user. But there is a huge potential to take it a step further to induce positive behaviour. This could encompass anything from a single small nudge to a large-scale multi-nudge system. With either approach, it has been shown through practice that well-designed nudging can effectively change persistent habits.
We hope that with this EPOMM e-update we can provide you with some insights on nudging and how it can influence urban planning and policy-making, but also how it can help citizens to make the right choice.
