BehaviourWorks Australia is a research enterprise within the
Monash Sustainable Development Institute
BehaviourWorks Australia (BWA) conducts research to help government departments, private sector and not-for-profit organisations make informed decisions on which behaviour change approaches are most likely to succeed in tackling wide range of social, environmental and organisational problems.
BWA researchers come from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines including psychology, sociology, behavioural economics, health, systems thinking, political science and education. They’re passionate about bridging the research-practice gap and working in collaboration with practitioners.
Since 2011, BWA has worked on hundreds of behaviour change programs across the areas of health, sustainability, finance, regulation and compliance, energy, social inclusion, safety, consumer decision-making, organisational change, community engagement and more.
I have had the pleasure of working closely with BehaviourWorks Australia since its inception. BWA’s assistance in developing, implementing and evaluating behaviour change trials is one of its key strengths as a group.Stefan Kaufman, Senior Broker, Social Sciences Advisory and Modelling, Environment Protection Authority Victoria
