Behaviour Change and Welsh - where next?

Date & Time: 10 September 2015, 9:30 - 1:00

Institute International Politics, Aberystwyth University

Following on from last year’s successful seminar, this is an opportunity to develop our thinking about the challenge of influencing people’s use of Welsh and learn additional lessons from Behavioural Sciences.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for all those who work in the language sector to:

  • be aware of the Welsh Government’s current thinking on ‘behaviour change’ and Welsh;
  • identify and share the challenges of influencing people’s use of Welsh in the home, at work, in schools, in the community etc.; 
  • consider the influence of Language Awareness Training
  • learn about key principles and theories from Behavioural Sciences.
