Workshops and Presentations

  • The BC BIG team runs introductory workshops and presentations to ministries in the BC Public Service. Learn more about our offerings by searching "behavioural insights" through the Learning Centre.

BI Boot Camp

  • Previous boot camps have examined how to:
    • Help British Columbians prepare for an emergency
    • Reduce the number of people who overdose
    • Reduce youth unemployment
    • Reduce energy consumption


  • We frequently partner with behavioural insights practitioners and academics in other jurisdictions to offer opportunities to learn, share, and network.
  • We co-host an annual conference called BIG Difference BC. Visit the BIG Difference BC website to see recordings of past presentations, and find out more about the 2022 event, scheduled for November 4th.
