Psychology for a better world

  • Puke Ariki Ariki Street New Plymouth, Taranaki, 4310 New Zealand (map)

Many people recognise that our current way of life has passed its use-by date. However, we continue to replicate it day after day.

Why? Can the same features of human psychology that prop up the status quo be tapped to create a better, more sustainable world – one that has human and ecological flourishing at its core?

In this talk, Niki will discuss how we can be more effective in bringing about positive change by tapping four human strengths: our shared values, drive for happiness, sociability and desire to be good.
