Mitigating climate change is more urgent than ever, and we need major leaps in systems and behaviors to address this critical issue. For more than a decade, BECC has presented behavioral research on nudging people and organizations to make these changes. Now is the time to move from nudges to leaps.

From Nudging to Leaping

In 2019 we looked at how to scale up programs. Now in 2020 we want to discuss HOW to push these programs faster and farther. BECC invites you to present your work and learn from others about how to encourage behavior change for energy and carbon savings:

  • Level up programs or move them to more effective roles or platforms.
  • Understand why individuals and groups change.
  • Make these transitions in fair and equitable ways.

BECC invites you to present your work and learn from others about how to encourage behavior change for energy and carbon reduction, evaluate these programs, understand why individuals and groups change, and make these transitions in fair and equitable ways. Researchers, academics, businesses, utilities, governments, and nonprofits come together to learn and network at this unique conference.

Deadline: April 1, 2019
Length: 300 words
Format options: Individual presentation (poster or oral) or panel/symposium
