We Inspire #9: Dr Fiona Fylan - Making Better decisions
In the latest episode of the We Inspire series, Dr Fiona Fylan from the School of Built Environment, Engineering and Computing talks about the science of behavioural changes and how we can use research to determine people to make more sustainable choices.
...one of the biggest [issues] we come across is simply that people live such busy, complicated lives. So if we're trying to tell them to make changes let's say for instance, to reduce air pollution in the city, that might involve them driving fewer miles, particularly for short journeys. If we're trying to suggest to them, don't drive to work, try it walk or cycle or take the bus, then we've got to understand what their life is like.
