Fun Theory Recipe



Take a pinch of psychology; a dash of technology, and a handful of creative thought, and you’ll end up with the recipe for the 'fun theory' initiative from Volkswagen. 

The purpose of the initiative: To change people’s behaviour for the better by making something simple – fun! The resulting entries proved that people’s behaviour can be changed for the better by making things, fun; from walking up stairs to putting garbage in the bin, and many others.

The videos below are only two of the entries and the website has several more. They are such simple but clever ideas, which proved to have very successful results.
See for yourself:- The Fun Theory (website).
