We have argued that design can and has to play a leading role in achieving this challenge and, in this regard, we have synthesized four interrelated themes from the edited text, which we discuss in the following. We believe that these four themes require attention by the field of design for behavioural change in order to progress the aforementioned challenges under the given pressures of scale and time.
