Sandy Killick from Common Cause is hosting workshops in Newcastle on the 20th and 21st November. I will be joining, and am hoping that you might too.

Common Cause Australia is a growing network of people working to engage cultural values that create a more equitable, sustainable and inclusive society. A movement to bring out the best in humanity, by engaging our shared values of compassion and self-direction www.commoncause.org.au

Common Cause workshops are of particular relevance to people working in environmental and social change organisations seeking a more effective approach to public engagement.

The values framework is based on a growing body of research in the fields of psychology, cognitive science, linguistics and behavioural economics, that suggests appealing to extrinsic values like fear, ego and status actually undermines is environmental sustainability or social change efforts. It also explains how to achieve wide, deep and enduring change.
