Want to learn some behavioral science from an expert?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns us that humanity has only about 10 years to cut global greenhouse gas emissions in half, and the consequences of failure are dire. The technology to solve the climate crisis has been available for years: This is a behavioral challenge. Simply providing information about what’s needed is seldom sufficient, sadly. This talk focuses on learning principles like positive reinforcement—more complex than it might seem. From the feedback in smart dashboards to gamification of all sorts of sustainable behaviors, we can learn to make wiser choices.

Successful programs include Seattle’s for green transport, an internationally successful approach getting kids to eat their veggies, and energy efficiency campaigns with surprising incentives. Ample resources offer support for anyone trying to make a difference—at home, at work, in the community, or more broadly. But can we learn to change quickly enough? And…can we gain useful lessons from the coronavirus crisis? Join Susan Schneider, behavioral scientist and author of The Science of Consequences (http://www.scienceofconsequences.com/), for this 1-hour webinar with Q&A at the end.
