In the environmental realm, people often worry about rebound effects, such that adoption of one pro-environmental behavior will undermine future environmental actions. Others assume that interventions will lead to gateway effects, whereby one pro-environmental behavior leads to others. This workshop will bring together academics, policymakers, and practitioners to discuss behavioral environmental interventions and the complications that arise when multiple behaviors or multiple instances of the same behavior are needed for program success.
Panel 1 – Persistence: Do individual behavior interventions last over time?
-Dave Newport, Environmental Center, University of Colorado Boulder
-Sharon Nolan, Global Natural Resource Management, Eastman Chemical Company
-Sharon Shewmake, Western Washington University
Panel 2 – Spillover: Do successful behavioral interventions always mean net benefits?
-Amanda Carrico, University of Colorado Boulder
-Alexander Maki, Vanderbilt University
-Katherine Lacasse, Rhode Island College
Lunch and keynote address
– Janet Swim, Pennsylvania State University
Panel 3 – Policy: What is the relationship between behavioral programs and policy?
-Sol Hart, Assistant Professor, University of Michigan Program in the Environment
-Katrina Kuh, Hofstra University
-Matthew Naud, City of Ann Arbor
-Heather Barnes Truelove, University of North Florida
Panel 4 - Missing links in research and practice: What else do we need to build behavior-based environmental programs with net benefits?
-Kaitlin Raimi, University of Michigan Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy
-Sonya Sachdeva, US Forest Service
-Paul Stern, National Research Council
