How do you persuade people to change their behavior in order to avoid causing environmental harm? Not the way most people try to do it. Information, moral suasion and fear are often ineffective or even counterproductive.
Join Elizabeth DeSombre ’88 for a conversation about why, and look into what approaches are more effective to achieve the large-scale long-term behavior change we need to address environmental problems.
DeSombre is the Camilla Chandler Frost Professor of Environmental Studies at Wellesley College.
