Chapter 6: Nudging for Positive Social Impact


At BVA Nudge Consulting, we believe that Behavioral Science can play a significant role in promoting positive social behaviors and “nudging” communities in safer, healthier and more sustainable directions.

In the sixth chapter of our book, we explore how we’ve put this belief to work.  Inside, you’ll find articles from Ted Utoft, Eric Singler and Scott Young on how organisations and individuals can move from “intent to action” on sustainability – and on the wisdom of focusing on “Agnostics.”  You’ll also find an insightful case study, regarding a project with Reckitt and our sister agency BVA Doxa to promote hygienic behaviors in Italian primary schools.
