Learn How Basic Principles of Behavior Change Can Help in the Fight to Preserve Our Environment at OSU This Friday

Columbus, OH, August 02, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The Association for Behavior Analysis International (ABAI) will host the Behavior Change for a Sustainable World Conference at The Ohio State University's Ohio Union August 3–5, 2012. Registration will open to the public Friday, August 3 at noon. The low registration fees do not require ABAI membership.

The program will feature prominent figures in behavior analysis, environmental organizations, business, and government. Invited addresses and panels, research and project posters, and interactive breakout sessions will give conference attendees a unique opportunity to interact with people of diverse backgrounds who are interested in working on one of the greatest challenges to face civilization since the last ice age.

Conference attendees can choose from a number of tours of sustainability research and development programs including the Byrd Polar Research Center, Center for Automotive Research, the Zero Waste Project at Ohio Stadium, and Blue Rock Station.

The conference kicks off Friday evening with presentations and a reception featuring hors d’oeuvres, wine, and beer to welcome attendees and provide an opportunity to become acquainted and network.

This conference will also offer CEUs. Continuing education for Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts and/or licensed psychologists will be available for invited presentations and some breakout sessions.

As world-famous climatologist Lonnie Thompson noted in his paper in The Behavior Analyst (Fall, 2010), there is currently no engineering fix for climate change. For now, the only thing we can do is change human behavior.
