BECC 2021: Reimagining the Future

BECC 2021: Reimagining the Future

For the past 15 years, the Behavior, Energy & Climate Change (BECC) conference has presented behavioral research and practice to foster individual and organizational change. At this year’s virtual conference on November 8-10, BECC wants to showcase ideas for reimagining and realizing an equitable, low carbon future.

BECC invites interested participants to present their work and learn from others about how to encourage behavior change that reduces energy consumption and carbon emissions, evaluate behavior-change programs, understand why individuals and groups change, and make transitions in fair and equitable ways. BECC participants and presenters represent a variety of backgrounds and communities: research, academia, business, utilities, government, and the nonprofit sector. All come together to learn and network at this unique conference.

Submission Deadline: April 1, 2021

Length: 300 Words

Review: Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of experts. Authors will be notified of acceptance in early summer 2021. Priority will be given to new work with original findings.
