Friday, August 3–Sunday, August 5, 2012
The Ohio Union at the Ohio State University, Columbus, OH
Early registration through June 18, 2012.
Save the dates now and plan to be part of this seminal gathering on how basic principles of behavior change can help in the fight to preserve our environment. As world-famous climatologist Lonnie Thompson noted in his paper in The Behavior Analyst (Fall, 2010), there is currently no engineering fix for climate change. For now, the only thing we can do is change human behavior.
The program will feature prominent figures in behavior analysis, environmental organizations, business, and government. Invited addresses and panels, research and project posters, and interactive brainstorming sessions will give conference attendees a unique opportunity to interact with people with diverse backgrounds who are interested in working on one of the greatest challenges to face civilization since the last ice age.
In addition to invited presentations by distinguished scholars, attendees will have the opportunity to review current research at a poster session. Questions regarding the sustainability conference should be directed to the ABAI office at (269) 492-9310 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Japanese Journal for Behavior Analysis posted an announcement for the conference in their latest issue. You can view the announcement here (in Japanese).
