Psychology of Sustainable Behavior Workshop: A skill-building workshop to support voluntary behavior
Are you someone who cares about the environment and wishes more people would make environmentally sustainable choices? Have you ever wondered how you can help people make those choices? You won’t want to miss this workshop on Saturday, February 25, 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at Lynnhurst Community Center.
The workshop facilitator, Dr. Christie Manning, has spent the last 15 years applying psychological research to issues of natural resource use, social justice, and sustainability. In this workshop, she will introduce a set of psychological guidelines that help create situations where the sustainable choice is also the most obvious or appealing. These guidelines facilitate individual-level action, and build bridges to larger-scale, city-level systemic change.
The workshop will offer several exercises designed to help you:
Identify and overcome barriers that stop people from taking action.
Understand your community’s identity and values.
Build social norms for sustainability.
Meet people’s deeper psychological needs.
