2nd meeting in the Danish Nudging Network

By Pelle Guldborg Hansen & Andreas Maaløe Jespersen

September 21 is approaching fast - the date that ought to be in your calendar if you're considering having your institution or organization incorporate nudging in its approach to behavioral change.  

Since our first meeting in the Danish nudging network in January 2011, interest as well as members in the network have been rising fast - as well as the number of talks that Andreas and I have been giving throughout Denmark.

Thus, we couldn't have been happier, when Richard Thaler said he would come to Denmark October 21 to help us raise awareness about the potentials that the Nudge approach offers to decision and policy makers.

So what's so special about September 21?
Well, since we know that a lot of you would like to know a bit more about nudging and prepare yourself properly for Prof. Thaler's visit, we've decided - in the true spirit of the nudging paradigm - to have the 2nd meeting of the nudging network EXACTLY one month prior to October 21. That should be easy to remember!

At the meeting new as well as old members will be introduced to the basic ideas behind the nudge paradigm, some of the major societal challenges that nudging may offer a new approach to engage with, as well as some lessons from the recent debate on nudging in the UK.

You may find the programme on page 3 of the Network's most recent newsletter HERE.

The meeting will be held at 

Metropolitan City University in Copenhagen
Pustervigvej 8, 2. sal, 
1126 Copenhagen

You may sign up by writing an e-mail to Andreas Maaløe Jespersen: anmaje@ruc.dk.
