The Behavior Analysis for Sustainable Societies (BASS) Special Interest Group was formed to advance applications of behavior analysis to environmental issues that contribute to the development of solutions to climate change, pollution, overconsumption of resources, and imbalances in environmental sustainability. Objectives include (a) to encourage and support research that promotes the application of behavior analysis to green/environmental issues; (b) to collaborate with environmental scientists, environmental groups, and other SIGs within ABAI that have an interest in addressing behavior change and sustainability/environmental issues; (c) to disseminate research and practices that support solutions to environmental issues through the application of behavioral interventions; (d) to develop curricula, textbooks, and additional educational resources that address sustainability and the application of behavior analysis; (e) to compile resources for individuals interested in behavior change and environmental issues; and (f) to develop an information base of current effective practices/initiatives, government policies, and employment for behavior analysts interested in behavior change and environmental issues. The business meeting is open to anyone interested in sustainability and environmental issues.
