School is back in session! As you start a new academic year, things might look a bit different than they did six months ago. Virtual classrooms, unfamiliar methods of teaching, and a new perspective on the future are shifting the way we live, learn, and work. During such a unique time, it is worth reflecting on how these events have impacted our personal lives, our communities, and our planet.
Similar to responses to COVID-19, behavior change is a central component to solving many of the environmental problems of our lifetime. We can harness these unique lessons and experiences related to human behavior to help steer our approach to other issues of collective action. In other words, how has this year shaped your perspective on behavior change for the environment?
We want to hear from you! Whether it be an essay, poem, painting, or video, we welcome you to submit a form of art or writing as a reflection of your experience with behavior change since the onset of the pandemic.
Choose one of our three submission prompts below and submit your work by November 15 @ 11:59 PM EST. Winners will receive an exclusive virtual mentorship lunch with the BE.Center and a feature on our web platform. Students of all nationalities are encouraged to take part in the contest.
