  • BEHAVIOUR CHANGE

    For a healthier, happier, more sustainable world

BehaviourWorks Australia is a research enterprise within the
Monash Sustainable Development Institute

We bring leading behaviour change researchers and practitioners together to find behavioural solutions to real-world problems.

 
What we do

BehaviourWorks Australia conducts research in collaboration with behaviour change practitioners in  government, industry and the not-for-profit sector, providing evidence on which behaviour change approach is most likely to work in addressing social, environmental and organisational problems.  
Who we are

BWA researchers come from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines including psychology, sociology, behavioural economics, health, systems thinking, political science and education. They seek to bridge the research-practice gap by collaborating with government and industry practitioners.

What we work on

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.

LATEST PROJECTS

What makes for a 'good' retirement?

AustralianSuper and BehaviourWorks collaborated on a behaviourally-focused study to better understand how confident people over 50 feel about retirement and what influences their decision to retire. The findings have been compiled into the first-ever Retirement Confidence Index.

Motivating fuel retailers

Leaks from underground petroleum storage systems can have significant impacts on people, property and the environment. To address this risk, Environment Protection Authority Vic engaged BehaviourWorks to explore options for raising awareness and promoting behaviour change.

Addressing food waste at home

More than five million tonnes of food waste ends up in landfill each year. This waste has major financial and environmental impacts. To explore options to reduce this waste, we examined food waste behaviours inside the family home using used video-ethnography research methods.
