Student: Tatiana Gabriichuk

Supervisor: Victor Attila Albert

Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences

Educational Programme: Political Analysis and Public Policy (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2021

The studied aspect is sustainable mobility, which is definitely connected with the aspects of sustainable development and overcoming the problem of dependence on traditional energy sources. The Moscow authorities are faced with the task of moving citizens as cost-effectively and environmentally friendly as possible. Furthermore, it has particular relevance in the context of encouraging residents to adopt healthy lifestyles that include physical activity. This is what, according to World Health Organization, reduces the epidemiological burden on health facilities, especially during a pandemic However, the absence of a range of barriers, from a lack of legal regulation to a dichotomous approach, all hinder progress in the work on sustainable mobility infrastructure in Moscow Agglomeration. The biggest obstacle that slowed down the organisation of the sustainable mobility system and infrastructure, however, was not the pandemic. COVID-19 can be said to have spurred citizens to think about their health and lifestyles, becoming a major aspect of nudging. However, the kind of expertise that the Moscow government refers to only partly addresses the possibilities of solutions through nudges. This is a very interesting aspect because part of the international expertise with which the MUF interacts is looking at the implementation of the COM-B model in engaging residents in healthy lifestyle practices.
