These illustrations depict the findings from a systematic evidence review on increasing participation and influence in local decision-making in Europe to address inequalities in determinants of health and wellbeing.

It illustrates that initiatives aiming to involve people in decision-making to address inequalities in health and wellbeing are more effective if they focus on a mix of these elements: formal and informal spaces for participation, developing opportunities for collective learning, strengthening collective capacities for influencing, developing relationships and trust, changing institutional practices in ways that value public knowledge, and a long-term focus and commitments to involvement.
