House of Lords to investigate behaviour change

A behaviour change inquiry has been launched by the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee. Calling for evidence on the effectiveness of behaviour change interventions “in achieving government policy goals and helping to meet societal challenges,” it could help create a strong evidence base on in relation to a whole host of issues, from criminal justice to green living.

There will be two case studies – one on obesity and the other yet to be decided (could it be low carbon living?). The deadline for written responses is Friday 8 October 2010

For more information and the call for evidence, see here.
