The Artefact behavior change workshop will show you how to design products and services that nudge people toward positive behavior change, producing outcomes that benefit end-users and their communities. For example, how can we encourage people to exercise or use public transportation more often? 

In this hands-on session, we'll introduce attendees to key concepts in behavioral economics and cognitive psychology to help them understand the often surprising factors that influence human behavior and decision-making. Using a series of engaging and thought-provoking exercises, as well as Artefact’s Behavior Change Strategy Cards, we'll help participants analyze a current problem or design challenge through the lens of behavior change and lead them to generate new solutions.

Students, professionals and design enthusiasts are encouraged to attend. No advanced knowledge or preparation is required.
