Environmental Sustainability and Behavioral Science: Meta-analysis of Pro-environmental Behavior Experiments
Abstract:An associate professor at Eastern Kentucky University, Dr. Richard Osbaldiston has been studying environmental issues for over 15 years as both an engineer and a psychologist. There have been over 100 published psychological experiments that have attempted to get people to do the right thing for the environment. These experiments have covered many different kinds of behaviors (recycling, energy conservation, etc.) and have used many different ways of motivating people (incentives, information, feedback, etc.) What is the big picture that comes from all of this research? In this webinar, Dr. Osbaldiston discusses his recent meta-analysis of these studies, and he shares what we know-and what we don't know-about promoting pro-environmental behaviors.
