A 45-minute informative and interactive online session examining the decision-making processes around buying a new car. Although you are one person, with one car to buy, your choice really matters!
This session is about why your choice of car matters to the people of Sheffield, and how people tend to weigh up different factors that affect their decisions. It is based on research conducted by SHU researchers for Sheffield City Council. The presenters will outline how behavioural science has been applied to help the council understand how to reduce the number of diesel engines on the city’s roads, in order to improve air quality and public health.
