Paths to Action

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.
