Evaluation of the Action Plan Invasive Alien Organisms (MPigO)
The current Action Plan Invasive Alien Organisms of the Canton of Zurich (in German: Massnahmenplan invasive gebietsfremde Organismen, short MP igO) runs from 2018 to 2021. In order to further optimise the work with the MPigO for the new term (2022-2025), an evaluation should provide information on possible problem areas or potential for optimisation.

Development of a conceptual framework for environmental communication
On a mandate of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment, Dialog N develops a conceptual framework, which is supposed to be used in evaluating the status quo with regard to any given environmental-related topic. Additionally, it provides guidelines for planning, designing, and evaluating communication measures, interventions and campaigns.
The framework model is based on the Intervention Mapping approach and on different theories and models from the fields of social-, health- and environmental psychology as well as theories of communication studies.
