Area: CSE; Domain: Applied Research

The need for behavior analytic approaches to environmental sustainability has become apparent over the last several years. Many community leaders and citizens are looking for a scientific approach to these problems, and behavior analysis can offer a solution. While environmental sustainability may be a non-traditional research question for the field, behavior analytic researchers are producing important experimental findings, and offering invaluable solutions for future research in the field. The presenters for this panel will be Mark Alavosius, William D. Newsome, and Molli M. Luke. All three presenters have published research in the area of environmental sustainability, offering invaluable insights into effective interventions and suggestions for future research. Research into environmental sustainability is becoming more and more socially valid, and this panel event will allow participants to hear from top researchers in environmental sustainability, their empirical understanding where behavior analysis has been, and where behavior analysis can go to helping improve the sustainability of our planet.
