The Inception of Behavioural Exchange

Behavioural Exchange 2014 is the culmination of a series of international partnerships that have emerged alongside the growing popularity of behavioural insights as an approach applied by governments around the world.

Recent books such as Nudge, by Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein; Thinking, Fast and Slow by Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman; and other valuable research insights from behavioural economists and psychologists have provided a strong evidence base to this behavioural approach.

In 2010, the UK Cabinet Office set up the world’s first "Nudge Unit," a team dedicated to trialling and applying behavioural insights to policy in government. This approach has since been applied in other governments around the world, including the United States, Australia, Singapore, Canada, New Zealand, and France.

Behavioural Exchange 2014 is the first truly international behavioural insights public policy conference of this scale, with delegates exposed to expertise from the United States, United Kingdom, Singapore, New Zealand, and across Australia. It is intended to be the first of a series, with others set to take place around the world in coming years.

Integral to the behavioural insights approach are the principles of testing, learning, and adapting in the name of supporting strong evidence-based policy making. Behavioural Exchange provides speakers and delegates with the perfect opportunity to share their understanding, experience, and evidence on behavioural insights with a global audience. A city that has long embraced innovation, Sydney’s iconic landscape provides the perfect backdrop for bringing together government, academia, and the corporate world to discuss this emerging field.
