Facilitating Behavior Change for Climate Impact

June 29, 2016 - 1:00pm PDT

Addressing climate change must include changing human behavior, yet individual concern about climate change rarely leads to behavior change in one’s everyday life. How can a project or initiative be designed to lead to real, lasting behavior change and reduction of carbon emissions? 

Whether you are participating in the Climate Disruptor challenge or otherwise interested in behavior change, this webinar will help you think through how you or your team can change behavior and move the needle on climate change. The webinar will identify the impact of different behaviors on carbon emissions, share what research says about key influences on behavior, and offer strategies to influence and change behavior in the workplace. 

You’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to change habits and human behavior and the inspiration to make it happen at your workplace.
