Session for the day: A virtual lunch 'n learn covering a diversity of behavioural insights for New Zealand's pandemic response. Thomas and Vishal will unpack some relevant findings on the subject of pandemics from behavioural science and related social sciences on moral decision-making, science communication, physical distancing and wellbeing.

This session will be a webinar-style discussion hosted on Zoom for both the Wellington & Auckland Behavioural Economics Network. You can send your questions, insights and thoughts on the group chat and we will aim to comment/respond to questions during the session.
