Behavioural Design & Economics for Policy Innovation
Policy innovation requires us to move beyond small iterations of things that aren't working right now to fundamentally ask different questions that fit the complexity of the problems we're facing today and so we can impact the futures of tomorrow. In this talk, Dr. Reid will introduce a new model for integrating behaviour science and design that provides a landscape and language for strategic policy innovation.
