TOPIC: Triggering Environmental Change Through Social Marketing
By focusing on the emotional and psychological landscape we can develop "triggers" to engage a person with justifications to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Often, one of these triggers is not sufficient alone; we need to layer several triggers on top of each other in order to achieve lasting behavior change. We will explore a few of these triggers and explore how to scale them to wider populations.
