Paths to Action: A Climate Week Event

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 8:30 am to 3:00 pm

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10003

We hear about new environmentally responsible practices and clean tech all the time, so why aren’t we seeing sweeping results?

The problem isn’t lack of technologies or policy solutions; it's apathy at both personal and corporate levels. To achieve real progress, we need to design for factors like urgency, empowerment, self-interest, and intuitiveness of action. In other words, for people knowing:

  • Delaying is as catastrophic as doing nothing
  • I can have real impact (not a drop in a bucket)
  • Acting now benefits me personally
  • I have a list of things I can easily do today

As a part of Climate Week, on Wednesday, September 20, we’ll discuss how we can create real behavior change across consumers at scale to support environmentally responsible practices, policies, and products.

Sponsored by the Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School.

Co-sponsors: PROGRESSDNAOpenshop, On the Right Mind, paths2action.orgSPINNAKER, and GIANT Innovation.


This event is part of The Nth Degree Series: Creative Minds Creating Change.
