Sustainable and Healthy Behaviour
Stefano Pascucci and
decades, researchers from various scientific disciplines have undertaken
great effort to understand and predict human behaviour. Often with the
purpose of gaining insight in how to curve (undesired) behaviour into more
healthy and sustainable manners. However, interventions that aim to change
human behaviour have often shown only moderately effective at best. One of
the obstacles appears to be that many behaviours in our daily life have
become routine behaviours (i.e. habits), which are - because of their
automaticity - difficult to change.
For this parallel track on healthy and
sustainable behaviour, we would like to invite scholars as well as
representatives from governmental and business organisations to share their
research and/or experience regarding behaviour change interventions.
Especially welcome are papers which discuss interventions that target habit
(de)formation. Topics may be food as well as non-food related.
