Issue date: 04 July 2012
This year's inspiring conference from ISHE brought together a wide range of professionals, policy makers and academics to debate how we can support the widespread transition to healthy and sustainable behaviours. Over a hundred people attended on 28 June to hear a range of excellent presentations and work togther to explore new approaches to encouraging sustainable behaviour.
The audience then split into workshop groups to consider how the '3 elements' and 'MINDSPACE' approaches might work in practice when addressing a range of healthy and sustainable behaviours relating to travel, energy, built environment, economics and public health. There was a real buzz in the groups as they grappled with the approaches and issues which continued over lunch with the dense and colourful sheets resulting from the each of workshops available for further study.
In the afternoon,
The final panel debate brought the day to a close with some great questions and audience interaction which gave everyone plenty to think about and provoked more debate beyond the formal business of the day.
Feedback from delegates reinforced the feeling of inspiration:
“I'm so pleased I came as I feel I've taken much away from it – it's broadened my awareness and opened me to new ways of considering behavioural change”
“the speakers were diverse, all engaging and challenging…”
“all excellent - a good mix that needed all viewpoints to achieve overall impact – surpassed my expectations by far”
