De Montfort University are hosting a free workshop on Monday 18th November 2019 on designing Behaviour Change initiatives to promote sustainability.

The free workshop is aimed at people who are actively involved in professional or voluntary sector initiatives that seek to promote behavioural change for sustainable development. This could be anything from saving energy to discussing climate change to promoting consumption of local food or much more.
In a collaborative and supportive environment, participants will:
  • Learn about and apply evidence-based frameworks for analysiing ‘problem’ or ‘target’ behaviours and apply these to a specific behaviour change issue
  • Reflect on their chosen behaviour change issue with peers to get feedback on next steps
  • Articulate a practical and testable ‘Theory of Change’ for your project
To register, please email Andrew Reeves on stating:
  • Your name
  • Your organisation or project
  • A specific behaviour change issue that you are (or will be) engaged with that you wish to focus on during the workshop (1-3 sentences)
  • Any dietary or accessibility requirements
Places are limited and available on a 1st-come 1st-served basis.
The session is being offered in collaboration with Leicester City Council through the RCE East Midlands, a network of organisations that seek to collaboratively address sustainable development through learning. If you are interested in joining the network or finding out more, please email Andrew Reeves on
