About policy lab
The policy lab is designed for policymakers and researchers whose work is to engage citizens, NGOs,
institutions and companies in policy. Inspired by the Design Thinking methodology, this bottom-up
approach helps to co-design policy recommendations with stakeholders in order to change their behaviours
and have an impact in everyday life. Built as 10 steps that be taken globally or separately,
this guideline is meant to be applicable to any country, any sector, with different focal points
to accommodate for local circumstances.

Other step Overview
- Ideation sessions described before can result in a large number of ideas for each target behaviour. To guide further analysis, ideas need to be selected.
Criteria could serve as guidance for policymakers looking to prioritise ideas targeting energy behaviour. Some examples:
- The potential impact of the policy recommendation on people’s behaviour
- The potential capacity of the policy recommendation to drive society toward a sustainable energy transition
- The potential capacity of the policy recommendation to be accepted by citizens
