    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. Our role is to provide 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’re passionate about bridging the research-practice gap by working in partnership 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.
