Why Attend BECC
The Behavior, Energy and Climate Change (BECC) Conference 2013 is the premier event focused on understanding behavior and decision-making with respect to energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, climate change, and sustainability. Annually, 700 participants come together to share new research, discuss innovative policy and program strategies, build networks, and find potential partners for collaboration.
The BECC Conference is convened by the Precourt Energy Efficiency Center (PEEC), Stanford University, American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), and California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE), University of California.
And Who You Can Meet!
BECC brings together a range of academics, practitioners, and policy-makers from a variety of fields engaged in energy and climate efforts in order to provide the latest and most relevant behavioral research, best practices, and methodologies. The organizers value abstracts from all relevant disciplines concerned with human behavior, society, and culture, especially work from applied anthropology, social psychology, behavioral economics, organizational behavior, political science, communications, and the cognitive sciences.
What is our Goal
No single field encompasses all facets of behavior change, so BECC brings together a wide range of top academics, practitioners and policy-makers to provide the latest and most relevant behavioral research findings, best practices and measured results.
Ultimately, we seek to answer this question: How can we most effectively encourage low-carbon behavior?
The organizers plan the agenda to cover diverse perspectives/disciplines (social sciences, behavioral economics, communications/marketing/entertainment, public health, cognitive sciences and others) and issue sectors, including residential and commercial buildings, transportation, urban design, and sustainable consumption (including food).
Policies and programs that have demonstrated results in changing behavior are of particular interest, as well as thoughtful discussions of transformative ideas in the areas of emerging policies, program design, and behavioral research methods.
