Prompting Environmental Behavior Change: from Science to Practice
The National Press Club
The Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment organized a July 31 panel discussion on how to encourage individual’s behavior and decision-making to have beneficial outcomes for the environment. (See full video below). Many factors, such as economic, psychological, environmental and social norms, influence human choices and actions. Stanford University researchers joined Brett Jenks of Rare and Margaret Walls with Resources for the Future to discus their latest findings on the drivers and motivations influencing environmental decisions and what it will take to encourage the scale of behavior change needed to tackle our most pressing challenges such as climate change and its consequences.
