Action Design St. Louis is a group of behavioral scientists, designers, developers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, researchers and others who are passionate about helping people create positive change in their lives.
We sit at the intersection of technology (UI / UX, data science), psychology (behavioral economics, positive psychology), and advocacy, and we focus on presenting our members with cutting-edge tools, research, and practitioners in each of these areas so they can apply the latest in behavioral science to their respective fields. Whether the goal is to help people save more money, get in shape, cut down on electricity usage, or learn a new language, the idea is the same: how can we use research in behavioral science to help people build habits and change their behavior?
Each meetup will feature an innovator sharing the work they're doing that leverages insights from behavioral science for improved outcomes. We’re going for focused, very practical meetings – start to finish only 60-90 minutes
