Programmes and policies oriented speciﬁ cally around social practice theories are in their infancy. The dominant modus operandi of programmes designed to effect change in social phenomena remains oriented to a greater or lesser extent towards individual, conscious decisions to ‘do’ things, hence the idea that programmes can be designed to intervene and change what is done. In recent research and theoretical development, the possibilities of ‘using’ social practice theories to inform and instigate social change have taken a number of interesting directions.
