How can we create a new future through Behavioral change? (Dutch spoken)
13 October 2022 @ 13:45 - 13 December 2022 @ 14:30
Please note that this session is held in Dutch.
We live in an era in which we face huge challenges like climate change, pollution of our natural environment, and starkly decreasing biodiversity, in addition to growing (mental) health issues and social-economical inequalities. Many of these issues found their origin in our behaviour as consumers, citizens and individuals. Nevertheless we prefer to turn to technology to find solutions that continue to enable our behaviour, than change our behaviour. What motivations are behind that preference? Why is behavioral change so difficult? Where are the ethical boundaries of manipulating such change? And what makes us decide to change our behavior after all? Can we influence that in a responsible way? And what role do creativity and design play in all of this?
