Net Gains for Pro-Environmental Behavior: Rebound Effects and Gateway Effects
Monday, June 12, 2017
8:30am - 4:00pm

Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy
Betty Ford Classroom (1110)
735 S. State Street
Ann Arbor, MI 48109

Free and open to the public – but you must register to attend (see below)
Space is limited to 50 participants

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.

Morning panels
Panel 1Persistence: 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

Afternoon panels
Panel 3Policy: 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
