This WG will concentrate its effort on identifying, and engaging and establishing a long term relationship between the present and future consumers of the recovered and reused resources from NBS. It will also coordinate and lead the interdisciplinary activities the programme entails.
The first objective of the WG will be to investigate and develop performance based assessment tools for measuring the impact of resource recovery and reuse cycles and their potential risks to the urban biosphere. The second objective will be to develop a mechanism to translate the technical information generated from the performance assessment tools into simplified knowledge and information for the consumers. The third objective of the group will be to establish public relations strategies and approaches to provide consumers with accurate, timely and satisfactory information, with the intention to maximise public engagement. Through effective knowledge dissemination and public engagement suggest methods to monitor and interpret citizens’ well-being and consumption trends (socio-economic preferences).
