GOOD MOVES #10: Sustainable behaviours at scale
Who is responsible for reducing the human impact on climate change and biodiversity? Is it businesses? Governments? Individuals? Too many discussions still tend to oppose the different actors and focus on one part of the equation.
The opposite couldn’t be truer though. We need everyone to play a part and the decisions and actions of governments, businesses and individuals are all deeply interconnected. For instance, when it comes to integrating insights and solutions from behavioural science into the policymaking process.
In this 10th episode of Good Moves, we interview two experts working on applying behaviour change solutions at scale through behaviourally-informed policymaking and collaboration between scientists and governments.
Rosa Strube, from the Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production, talks about the importance of collaboration between governments, businesses and the third sector to more effectively create sustainable behaviour change.
And Nives Della Valle, from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, talks about how to design better energy policies thanks to behavioural insights.
Last but not least, Ramya Rao shares the third and final article of her miniseries on the link between mindfulness and sustainability, including some practical advice for all of us to start living a more conscious life.
