15 YEARS OF IDEAS42

Over the past 15 years, we've worked on over 600 projects with over 400 partners in more than 50 countries across the globe—all with the goal of using behavioral science to create a more equitable world.

People don't often behave in the ways we assume they will. That's why we use behavioral science—the science of how people actually behave—to reinvent systems, and design more effective products, services, and programs in collaboration with and for the benefit of communities with the fewest resources and opportunities.

But we don't stop there.

By identifying the underlying behavioral causes of some of our world’s biggest challenges, we’ve not only been able to design novel solutions—we’ve also rigorously tested and scaled them—allowing us to impact over 34 million people to date.

And we’re just getting started.

Impacting lives is simply not enough, because in order to make the world better, we need to make it fairer. In honor of our 15th anniversary, we’ll not only be reflecting on the progress we’ve made thus far, but also looking ahead at why we believe behavioral science is essential to creating a more equitable world.
