Interested in environmental behavior change but not sure where to start? This self-paced course will walk you through a Behavior-Centered Design journey in a series of ten modules and prompt you to complete short exercises along the way. On your own time you’ll explore the eight steps of behavior-centered design, including framing an environmental challenge, gaining empathy with your target audience, connecting research data to behavioral insights, ideation and prototyping, and measuring the success of your behavioral intervention. You will gain a basic understanding of the levers of behavior change with which we design environmental solutions, such as emotional appeals, social influences, and choice architecture.

Led by trainers from the Center for Behavior & the Environment, we’ll explore the steps of behavior-centered design, including framing an environmental challenge, gaining empathy with your target audience, connecting research data to behavioral insights, ideation and prototyping, and measuring the success of your behavioral intervention. You will gain a basic understanding of the levers of behavior change with which we design environmental solutions, such as emotional appeals, social influences, and choice architecture. We then begin to apply the tools of behavior-centered design to a specific case study as a team. This is a highly interactive workshop geared toward building expertise in behavioral science concepts and principles and spending meaningful time practicing and applying the insights to your own work. You will leave with an understanding of the behavior-centered design approach and ideas for applying it to your own work. Important note on our virtual offering: To make the best use of the virtual format and of our time together, this training includes pre-work assignments as well as short assignments after each session to provide an opportunity to apply the material we cover in real-time. In order to get the most out of your experience, we recommend that you reserve the 3 days of the workshop as if you were attending in person.  We will also offer 1:1 coaching sessions after the training for you to get feedback from our team about your behavior change challenge. There will be two timezone options for live sessions: one for North/South America, Europe, and Africa, and another one for Asia-Pacific. The five sessions will be sequential, so all of them are required. The total estimated time for completion is 10.5 hours including e-learning modules (2.5 hours) and instructor-led live sessions (7.5 hours) Sessions will start at 9:00am and 1:00pm UTC+8 (Beijing/Manila) for the Asia/Pacific offering and 10:00am and 2:00pm UTC-4 (New York) for the North & South America/Europe/Africa offering. Please select the five sessions in your desired timezone when registering.
