Persuasion for Social Good – What are the techniques of persuasion that are being used to influence our behavior to improve health, promote social justice, address environmental concerns, etc.? Could you use persuasion in a positive social experiment and film the process and results?

The Normative Influence– How powerful is the normative influence on our behavior? Where can we see it in our everyday lives? What would be an interesting variation of the Asch experiment you could do and film to explore this aspect of conformity?
