This event will contain limited plenary sessions - the focus will be parallel workshops and activities exploring different elements of human behaviour change. Workshops will include topics relating to application of behaviour change theories in real life situations, to give participants the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of some of the more theoretical parts of HBC.


There will also be opportunities to network, test your ideas and meet all the facilitators during innovative optional activities. There will be a Friday evening reception event and a Saturday evening dinner. 


We will announce the workshops and speakers over the next couple of months - as a taster Dr Anne McBride (University of Southampton) will be giving a plenary talk "The Psychology of Behaviour Change - why, where and how?". 


Exeter is a beautiful city, easily accessible by air, rail and road. We have big plans to make it extra-special so please do get in touch...


Of course we would also love to hear from any potential sponsors.
