The H&M Foundation takes us on their journey to reinvent fashion through their Global Change Award’s winners and new technology break-throughs, while Impactually introduce us to “nudging”. Because everyday life is full of decisions – how we shop, consume, do business… We understand the effects of our daily choices on society and the planet, but still we don’t always make the right choices. Perhaps all we need is a little nudge in the right direction? “Nudging”, the term, coined by the 2017 winner of the Nobel Prize in Economic Science, Richard Thaler, is a way to drive people into making better choices for their own and society’s wellbeing, small steps eventually leading to significant changes. Learn how behavioral economics can be used to your social venture or non-profit organization’s advantage.
Moderated by Therese Engström, Co-founder Sime Social Impact.
With Erik Bang, Innovation Lead, H&M Foundation – Nurit Nobel, Behavioral Scientist and Chief Executive Officer, Impactually – Tjeerd Veenhoven, one of the Global Change Award winners and who makes vegan leather from algae.
