BECC 2019 Conference on Scaling Up

November 17-20 | Hyatt Regency, Sacramento, CA

The theme of this year’s conference is “Scaling Up.” The need to mitigate climate change is more urgent than ever. BECC has been at the forefront of supporting behavioral research to address climate and energy issues for more than a decade. Now is the time to take these established principles and practices and scale them up. Scaling up means looking at the big picture, adapting small interventions for broad application, working with others, addressing policy, and generally taking climate action to the next level. In 2019, through regular and special sessions, we plan to showcase research, programs, organizations, and people that help move toward sustainable energy and climate future.

What you will need to be ready to submit:

  • A word document describing your proposed presentation:  200-400 words
  • The names of co-authors and email
  • Select format for your submission–presentation/poster or the panel discussion option.  See details below.
