Naslov/Title Being Seen, Being Good:How Observation Influences Driving Habits

Avtor/Author Dan Podjed


Avtor v prispevku ugotavlja, kako nadzorovanje in opazovanje spodbujata altruizem in prosocialno vedenje. Posveti se različnim oblikam opazovanja, in sicer nadzoru od »zgoraj« in »spodaj«, vrstniškemu nadzoru in samonadzoru. Te vidike bolj podrobno obravnava na primeru različnih načinov za spodbujanje eko-vožnje.
