BE.Hour Webinar Series

Rare's Center for Behavior & the Environment is hosting a regular series of webinars on topics on principles of Behavior-Centered Design.

BE.Hour is a free, community networking event where behavior change practitioners, designers, and researchers in the environmental field can share their work, reflect on past setbacks, and exchange tools, resources, and tips. See upcoming events below, and we hope to see you there. Our goal is to host BE.Hour events at times that work for our global community as much as possible. Slides from all events will be posted after each webinar.

FAQ

What is the BE.Hour webinar series?

The BE.Hour webinar series will contain eight one-hour long webinars presented by the BE.Center over the course of 2023 and 2024. The webinars are focused on behavioral science topics, with a particular emphasis on Rare’s behavior-centered design journey and behavioral levers.

Who can attend the series?

If you are a member of behavior.rare.org (also known as BRO), you are welcome to join! BRO members tend to be those interested in social science, design science, and environmental psychology, and how those concepts can be integrated into conservation and environmental work. Does that sound like you? If you want to join BRO, make a free account today and encourage your colleagues to do the same! You can access resources, interact with other members, and see past webinars. Questions? Email María at mdabrowski@rare.org.

Who can present in the series?

The topics of all future webinars are posted below. If you have real-world examples of how you have integrated part of the behavior-centered design journey in your work, and you want to share a ten-minute presentation of how you have done so, email María at mdabrowski@rare.org to discuss!

Where and when is the series being held?

We want as many people as possible to be able to attend these series. They will happen at varying times so that different time zones can be included, and will occur about two months apart each (though this may vary). All webinars will be held via Zoom. There will be three separate webinars in Spanish on some topics (listed below), with dates and times TBD.

What is a typical agenda?

A webinar typically begins with a welcome and review of the webinar’s objectives, and is followed by a ~10 minute presentation about the topic in theory, and then a ~10 minute presentation of the topic in action. Afterwards, attendees can choose a breakout room to ask further questions, participate in activities related to the behavioral topic, or network with other community members. The last few minutes are reserved for announcing future webinars or other Rare events, as well as a thank you to all attendees.
