Hi Tony,

This looks great. I look forward to buying my first packet of sticky rice. You must let us all know when this is up and running.

Great you have an interest in this Jane. The behaviour change approach has been used successfully in other areas such as public health and international development.

We based a lot of our theory on the work of Doug Mackenzie-Mohr's book - Fostering Sustainable Behavior: An Introduction to Community-Based Social Marketing. Seems its available as an online book. 


I also  just found this web page which looks to have some useful links - although I haven't checked them out. I would imagine the Rare link would be a good one.


Thanks Lucy, This will be a great starting point for further research.

Hello Jane, lovely to have you on this training workshop. I am interested in circular economy and how it can have benefits for conservation, I have a couple of friends that work in that area, but I don't know much about it myself. I came across this inteteresting paper the other day, although I've only read the abstract https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0048969720321185

Hi Beth,

Thanks for the link. I have read the abstract and some interesting points made.

Welcome Jane! Good to meet you this morning. I had a quick look at the Greater Dixter website - looks like a beautiful place.

Thank you. It is a very special place.
