Event description
Strategies for Sustainable Behaviour Change

About this Event

Women in Sustainability (WINS) exists to help women flourish in careers that are building a sustainable world. This event will focus on how we can create the behaviours that benefit people, our prosperity and the planet. This will be a friendly, informal and highly interactive session in which our speakers will facilitate conversations about the challenges and opportunities we face, and share their wealth of experience.

The speakers are highly influential and impactful women, who'll be sharing their insights and tips on how to turn behavioural science insights into real change.

Adding to the mix the usual 'Women in Sustainability' approach of getting you connecting and working together, this will be a highly engaging session that you simply can't afford to miss!

The Women in Sustainability Network is already established with Network Hubs in London, Oxford, Bristol, Manchester and Newcastle.

As ever there will be the space and opportunity to network and share experiences with colleagues. We look forward to seeing you there!

Speakers are as follows:

Over the past 4 years she has successfully led IKEA’s pioneering Live LAGOM program (Co-worker & customer engagement program) partnering with University of Surrey and the Charity Hububb to develop an evidence based approach. Sharon will share insights from the Live Lagom programme including top tips, surprising business results and the biggest learnings from the mistakes made.

She worked previously for Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Scottish Local Planning Authorities, conservation NGO and consultancy.

At the event, Linda will reflect on moving out of a dedicated planning role, and the challenges around engendering behaviour change in response to the climate and nature emergencies.

....and as a bonus for this event, Lower Impact Living (Lil) will be bringing along their pop up.

Lil is on a mission to make Lower Impact Living so easy that everyone is doing it. Lil shares news, tips and products to help people make better choices, because if 7.7 billion people do Lil things then that's a big change for people and planet!

Louise Hastie and Sarah Bronsdon run Lil together: Sarah from an environmental background and Louise from community and communications roots. They began Lil as a solution to their frustration at the lack of awareness of the multitude of issues facing earth and the lack of resources to support progression to a lower impact life - a journey they both feel they are still very much on. Lil’s range of products has been carefully selected to deliver maximum benefit and minimum impact. Many are sourced from local producers or other social enterprises supporting social objectives. All are a better choice for the environment with little or no plastic, no toxic ingredients and many are reusable and made from recycled materials - circular economy in action! They will have a selection of stock available on October 9th so pop over to the stall for a chat and see if you can find the answers to the quiz!
