Fun stuff: The reception on the Friday night will take place at The Donkey Sanctuary - buses will be provided to take you there (and back!). There will be the opportunity to meet the donkeys and tour the venue, entertainment and more. The dinner on the Saturday night will also include entertainment and the opportunity to enjoy an evening with like-minded people. 

Minimizing our footprint: All food served at the event will be vegan, we are liaising with the venue to exclude single-use plastic, and we are striving to make ethical choices in every stage of the organisation of this event. 

Impact: We will be writing up the event, recording interviews with the speakers and more to ensure the essence of what you learn flourishes and continues to grow long after the event is over.

Taking HBCA from Principles to Practice

We are now sold out for this event. There is some availability with some restrictions so get in touch if you are keen to come and we can discuss the options.

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. The Friday is just the reception event, a tour and event at the Donkey Sanctuary (transport will be provided), the workshops are across Saturday and Sunday.

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 including any organisation who might be able to provide eco-friendly pens and/or bags for our lovely delegates..
