Greening Seminar: How to Make Lasting Behavior Change

Monday, May 12, 2014

Have you been educating your community about topics such as recycling, saving energy, composting, or purchasing green products? Are you disappointed that your staff, members, or tenants know what they should be doing, but they're still not doing it?

Community-Based Social Marketing (CBSM) is a results-oriented proven approach that will help you achieve measurable change. CBSM combines insights from psychology and social marketing that will enable you to understand the specific barriers to change in your organization and community and develop strategies to overcome them.

In this workshop, you will learn the five steps in CBSM and begin to create your own campaign to foster sustainable behavior. This workshop will not only focus on behavior change for environmental sustainability, but the principles can be applied to changing other kinds of behaviors as well.

Sponsors: UJA Federation of NY & The Jewish Greening Fellowship of Hazon
