Hi all,
 
From June 21 - 25, 2021, the United Nations will be hosting a Behavioural Science Week, featuring over 15 events from nine different UN entities (e.g. World Bank, UNDP, WFP). The week's events will explore how behavioural science can be applied to the Sustainable Development Goals. 
 
Some examples of webinars include how behavioural science can be applied to (among others):
 
  • boost vaccination uptake
  • promote better nutrition
  • support entrepreneurship
  • prevent violent extremism

Additionally, Nobel Prize Winner Professor Richard Thaler will discuss how choice architecture impacts our behaviour and how ethical nudging can help people follow through with their intended actions.
 
On the first day of the week, the UN's Behavioural Science report will be released.
 
There's a lot to explore here. If you're interested in any particular events, you need to click on the red button that says "Register Here" or "Join Here" at the bottom of the event description.
 
Here's the link again for your convenience.
