How to work further on the implementation of mitigation options for the households?

HOPE project outcomes

This week, the 4 years of work of the HOPE project ended with a science-policy meeting in Brussels. This project was a cooperation between the CIRED, the University of Public Health of Heidelberg, the University of Umeå, and the Western Norway Research Institute and TEC Conseil. The main project results were presented and discussed with a panel of policy makers and advisers at different levels, from the local to the european one. Why can’t we consider the economic impact of actions as a main driver for household choices? What are the « low hanging fruits » actions to be supported by policies? To what extent is health a decisive indicator? Why should we particularly aim at the development of food and mobility actions? You will find our main results, available on the HOPE website (www.hope-project.net) .
