Guides to effective communication:

  • The Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) has produced a useful Communication and Visibility Manual (2010). This includes a template for developing a communication plan.
  • CIVITAS (“Cleaner and Better Transport in Cities”), an initiative co-financed by the EU, has produced a communications and marketing toolkit. This provides guidelines on communicating with citizens about sustainable urban mobility options. Lessons from the toolkit are also applicable to LIFE project communications
