On 28 June 2022, the Policy Learning Platform organised its first onsite workshop after more than two years.

The event took place in Thessaloniki, Greece, and put the spotlight on behaviour change and participatory processes for sustainable mobility. More than 50 policymakers from across Europe were present and able to exchange their experiences, good practices and network - and e-smartec was there, too.

What was the workshop about? 

While we often think of the low-carbon transition as being technology-based, people need to be empowered to make a change, understand it, and use new technologies.

Policy-making is undergoing a paradigm shift, recognising the need to get a more comprehensive understanding of citizen needs and behaviour, and to involve them in the process so that policy is most efficiently and effectively implemented.

To learn more about this topic, explore the follow-up brief of the event that contains all things behaviour change and participatory planning, as well as inspiring Interreg Europe good practices and policy recommendations.
