Designing for Sustainable Urban Mobility Behaviour: A Systematic Review of the Literature
Lisa Klecha and Francesco Gianni
To investigate how technology can mediate the process of behaviour change, particularly in the context of smart cities, this paper presents a systematic literature review, focusing on three areas are of interest: the utilised technology, behaviour change strategies, and citizen participation in the development process. The paper suggests that future research should a) explore opportunities stemming from ubiquitous technology, b) employ behaviour change strategies grounded in reflective learning, and c) promote citizen involvement with participatory methods.
