A scoping study on the links between public communication, environment policy implementation and behavioural science. In its Multiannual Work Programme
2014-2018, the EEA highlights the need for a transition towards a more
sustainable society, fully aligned with the European Union’s 7th Environment
Action Programme. This study explores - and aims to develop - the role
of public communication to improve the implementation of environmental
legislation and to contribute to this debate by bringing communications, environment and behaviour closer. It draws from other EEA work, in particular on consumption and policy evaluation where relevant.
