In addition to the ongoing support from Monash University and the Monash Sustainable Development Institute, we’re fortunate to have some of the country’s most inspirational and experienced leaders on our Advisory Board. The members represent all Consortium partners.
BehaviourWorks Australia wouldn’t be where it is today without the ongoing support of its consortium partners. Made up of a group of Victorian and Australian government agency partners, along with The Shannon Company (a leading communications agency), the BWA Consortium is the vehicle through which the partners collaborate, share intellectual property and build capacity for behaviour change. Several consortium partners have been with us from the beginning, but we continue to attract new members and welcome enquiries.
The Monash Sustainable Development Institute (MSDI) is one of the world’s leading interdisciplinary research and education institutes for sustainable development. It brings multidisciplinary experts together to find real solutions to some of the most significant challenges facing our world today, including those articulated in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
MSDI is a founding partner and seeks to apply BWA’s extensive knowledge of, and experience in, developing effective behaviour change interventions to SDG-related projects.
BehaviourWorks also collaborates with other MSDI programs, such ClimateWorks Australia, Monash Water Sensitive Cities and the Oxfam Monash Partnership.
The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) Victoria is a founding partner. The EPA is responsible for regulating pollution, ensuring that environmental regulations are effective and being an influential authority on environmental impacts.
The EPA aims to support a healthy environment for a liveable and prosperous Victoria.
Some of the projects we have collaborated on include redesigning letters to achieve improved compliance outcomes, implementing trials to reduce instances of illegal dumping, capturing the experiences of environment protection officers to inform a business behaviour segmentation framework, developing new warning signs using eye-tracking approaches, and exploring the opinions and responses of businesses to current compliance issues.
The Shannon Company is a specialist behaviour change consultancy with a mission to inspire people to change their behaviour – willingly and for good.
The Shannon Company is a founding Consortium partner. Together we have worked to integrate insights from the behavioural sciences into client solutions across multiple sectors, in innovative ways.
This work is most visible in communications campaigns in areas such as reducing family violence, Saving 000 for Emergencies, targeted WorkSafe campaigns and the recent ‘Call it Out’ campaign seeking to reduce sexual harrassment.
Sustainability Victoria is the Victorian Government’s program delivery agency in environmental sustainability. It is dedicated to enhancing the state’s thriving and sustainable future by improving the way Victoria manages its resources and supporting communities to respond to climate change.
Sustainability Victoria is a founding Consortium partner. Some of the projects we have collaborated on include engaging households and businesses in integrated waste management and energy efficiency, literature reviews examining the impact of particular behaviour change approaches to recycling, food waste, home renovations, littering and energy efficiency investment practices in commercial office buildings.
The Department of Transport plans, builds and operates an integrated, sustainable and safe transport system for Australia’s fastest-growing state.
Formerly VicRoads, the department has been a Consortium partner since 2015. We’ve worked on a range of projects with a particular focus on improving letters to increase compliance with licencing and vehicle-related requests.
The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is responsible for effective and sustainable planning and the development of industry to support the growth in NSW and provide services that benefit the community and the future of NSW regions and local areas.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) strives to create liveable, inclusive and sustainable communities that support jobs and growth in Victoria.
DELWP recognises the link between the built and natural environment in the quality of Victorians’ lives and works to accommodate population growth while maintaining world-class liveability and protecting heritage for future generations.
DELWP became a Consortium partner in 2015.
