    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 to help government departments, private sector and not-for-profit organisations make evidence-based decisions about which behaviour change approach is most likely to succeed in tackling 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.

The BehaviourWorks Method

Developed over several years, the BehaviourWorks Method is a tried and tested approach to behaviour change.
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.

What behaviours are driving our wasteful ways with food?

In NSW, the average household disposes of around six litres of food waste a week. The Love Food Hate Waste program seeks to raise awareness of the impacts of food waste. The real question is, what's driving the behaviour?

Using SMS to increase vaccinations

The National Immunisation Program funds a Human Papillomavirus vaccine. In Vic this is delivered by councils through secondary schools. However, not all students are getting all three doses. We investigated the effectiveness of SMS reminders.
