Using argumentation within sustainable transport communication

  In this paper we present the preliminary results of a survey of persuasive communication within the sustainable transport domain. This survey is underpinned by a reconstruction of the arguments used, a scheme oriented analysis of the corpus of reconstructed arguments, and elements of a theoretical and applied framework for using the corpus to effect lasting behaviour change using argumentative techniques within the self-same domain.
