- Pre-Conference Workshops
We will be hosting pre-conference workshops on February 20th, registration details to follow soon:
Behaviour change interventions to address sedentarism in different communities
The workshop will include talks and working group activities focusing on the role of behaviour change and other theories that support reasoning about the social and community contexts within which behaviour takes place. The focus is on reducing sedentarism across communities (e.g., schools, work places, care homes) where it is possible to introduce digitally enabled interventions to shape individual and group practices.
Participants will learn about various theoretical and empirical approaches to behaviour change as applied to the challenge of reducing sedentarism within communities.
Format: Full day Workshop
