#3 Behaviour change 101 – Why you cannot change people – and what to focus on instead.

June 24, 2020 | 4 pm CET | Zoom

“Changing behaviour” is seen as the #1 challenge by CityChangers who are passionately driving change around the world. We can see why: Humans just hate to change. What’s even worse, scientists tell us to forget about making people change. So what should we do instead? Take a seat on the SOFA with seasoned behaviour experts to hear how you should focus on people wanting to change.

#4 Bringing your vision to life – It’s all about creating images and stories to relate to.

July 2, 2020 | 4 pm CET | Zoom

Okay, so you’ve got a vision: now what? If you want to bring it to life and to prevent it from ending up in some drawer, it needs to be widely shared! Your job is to create images and a storyline people can emotionally relate to. People must “live” it. Take a seat on the SOFA when we will take a close look at some of the most powerful visions, identify their key ingredients and learn the most effective ways to develop a vision that thrives.


(Thursday) 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
