On April 1st at 2 pm CET, we co-hosted the event “Towards 2030: Navigating complexity and information overload in decision-making” as part of UNRISD’s “From Science to Practice!” series, leading up to the UN High-Level Political Forum in July.

You can relive the event on Youtube.


To achieve the 2030 Agenda, decision-makers need to deal with complexity. This session focuses on how they can benefit from behavioural science. Participants will learn about navigating complexity and information overload, based on the state of the art behavioural science.
