Behaviour change: Making a difference to entire communities

Thursday 10th May - 11:40-12:20

Behaviour change is often spoken about as a one-to-one or small group strategy, helping individuals better understand their own needs and motivations so they can move towards a deep-rooted, sustainable change in their habits. It’s about making them an active participant in their own journey towards change, helping them to help themselves over the long term.

But what if we could use these strategies to make a difference to entire communities? In this session, we explore the potential of behaviour change programmes to impact public health on a mass scale.
