A new RadoNorm publication has recently come out in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health titled “Co-Designing Communication: A Design Thinking Approach Applied to Radon Health Communication”. In this article, S. Apers, H. Vandebosch, T. Perko and N. Zeleznik conducted participatory research with residents from radon priority areas in Belgium and Slovenia to understand the barriers and facilitators of homeowners regarding radon protective behaviour on the one hand and co-designing communication tools on the other hand. The publication among others, provides practical suggestions on how to communicate in order to improve mitigation rates. The paper is freely available here.
