Abstract:The successful implementation of global energy transition does not only depend on the development of new energy technologies, but also requires major changes in the patterns of individual energy-related choices and behaviors. Governments cannot achieve environmental protection goals alone. Governments obviously need support and guidance from the public. Public participation helps build a more involved citizen, increases the legitimacy of decisions, and helps ensure that policy-makers have valuable local knowledge. Drawing on best practice from cities across Europe, this research aims to better understand how and why public participation is used in city transport policy and using more sustainable modes of transport in general and in a number of cases.
