Today’s story

  • How can we use insights from social psychology theories and research to get people to give and volunteer more?
  • Today’s story is not about tricks - ‘nudging’ and ‘priming’.
  • Instead, it is about theory, data, methodology, and the industry called ‘social science’.

Context

  • “Participation society”: volunteers become more important in the provision of public goods.
  • “Trust crisis”: trust in banks, organized religion, politics, and ultimately generalized social trust are at risk.
  • In an ageing society, keeping people active as long as possible may reduce health costs.
