Key Points:

•    CBSM – use of tools, prompts etc. case studies work, may not go deep enough with values – moving from energy – water –

•    Future perfect – green home – way of visioning a utopia

•    YVW behaviour change barrier breakdown process, levels of engagement, water smart – based on social data methodology, 2 yrs of data before 9000 – based on.  Produced data around self reported change

•    Internal and external barriers eg can’t affect my water bill – cost

•    Board – aware of change, energy knowing its usage and cost eg usually swimming pools.  Black balloons campaign marketing not tangible.  Was successful in some visual aspects.

•    People are so different – amount of positive thinking – 3 important parts of it – what will be the outcome of the action for me?  2 – social pressure – is there a group of people around me who care – males, gov, neighbours etc. and 3 – barriers – what are they – money, time etc?   ……………………..????? these barriers there are people who are willing and people who are not willing.  Survey – what are those beliefs?  Eg Townsville example, people will do it for environment etc.  I…………………………………………….????Positive thinking to support this target. (name of the model) Author fishbeinicekajzen – predicting action and change behaviour, the reasoned approach.

•    Need a multi-prong approach eg legislation, cultural norms, beliefs, etc.

•    Household relationship & habits how to effect

•    Transition towns – read the transition handbook by Rob Hopkins.  Connecting communities and building resilience in peak oil, conversations, relationships then transactions.  The sharehood –   CSA – community sustainable agriculture – similar views

•    Princes Hill High School & Lauriston on the school building – solar panels, water tanks etc.  Assi – Australian Sustainable Schools – resource smart is the Victorian Section – SEC – SV-website

•    Jika – Jika – growing greening neighbourhoods house

•    ANU – does network analysis look at how connected the communities are and what model will you use to target group eg aids example on unit address large group and disconnected groups.

•    Transition book self funded from day one – to do your own and have active people – steering committee to be Rachel Lowery – palm oil.  Act for nature campaign – commitment chosen

•    Solar critics – Townsville – magnet and follow – 6 months later

•    Increase your own commitment to remind yourself

•    Behaviour change models and theories CBSM

•    Community grass roots organisations that work eg transitions towns.  The sharehood etc. examples of demonstrations that work eg Princes Hill high – solar panels on school, raintanks etc – growing greener neighbourhoods etc.
