We bring behaviour change researchers together with government and industry to find behavioural solutions to real-world problems.

We are a leading behaviour change research enterprise within the Monash Sustainable Development Institute.

We are impact-driven behavioural researchers 

Our interdisciplinary team of PhD qualified researchers come from a wide range of backgrounds and disciplines. We strive to work collaboratively with government and industry, bridging the gap between research and practice to solve our most pressing social, environmental and organisational problems.

Research

As part of the Monash Sustainable Development Institute, we aim to make an impact on the social, environmental and economic challenges articulated in the United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our behaviour change programs are for the good of the planet and its people.

Our approach

We use the BehaviourWorks Method

The BehaviourWorks Method is a tried and tested approach to changing behaviours. It's our approach to helping organisations understand why, how, and at what points research can be used to help address policy problems.

Consisting of three overarching phases – Exploration, Deep Dive and Application – The Method helps organisations gather the evidence they need to make better program and investment decisions.

Education & training

We offer cutting edge training programs

Our behaviour change training programs are developed in-house by our behavioural scientists. Our classrooms provide an in-depth understanding and insights into the world of behaviour change where you learn the skills needed to better understand the problem and design your own behaviour change intervention.

We create and curate behaviour change resources

Our free educational tools and resources include a large database of research and an open access book we wrote explaining how to apply the BehaviourWorks Method. We also post regular short articles and explainers for how to use behaviour change to real-world contexts.
