      "Understanding and Influencing Sustainable Behaviors:: Promoting
      energy conservation, recycling, and alternative transportation"

      Lecture | October 20 | 12-1 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall, UC Berkeley

      Speaker/Performer: Joan Walker, Asst Prof, Department of Civil and
      Environmental Engineering and Institute of Global Metropolitan Studies

      Sponsor: Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Sustainability (CACS)

      What drives people to behave in sustainable ways? What policies can be
      enacted to promote more sustainable behavior? How can we determine
      what policies are most effective? These questions can be addressed
      with the behavioral research described in this talk. The talk has
      three parts. First, Professor Walker will describe creative approaches
      to promote sustainable behaviors in energy, recycling, and
      transportation. Second, she will explain the statistical models she
      uses to analyze behavior. Finally, she will discuss a behavioral
      experiment that aimed to measure what impact it had on people’s
      transportation choices to provide them with information on GHG
