Have you ever wondered why people are aware of what's happening to the environment - but don't take action? Changing people’s behavior is key to addressing environmental issues we face today. But how do we change human behavior for the benefit of the environment? Join Impact by Design for a virtual, interactive presentation on behavior change, discover the basics of the human behavior change process, and explore successful behavior change campaigns from around the globe. You will learn the difference between traditional ‘awareness-raising’ approaches and behavior change science - and gain a better understanding of how some initiatives use behavior change science to go beyond awareness to action.
