The Climate, Mind and Behavior Program convenes leading thinkers and practitioners in the fields of climate change and environmental advocacy, neuro-, behavioral and evolutionary economics, psychology, policy-making, social networking investing and social media. During the program’s annual symposia and regional meetings CMB network participants work together to identify ways to shift human behavior so as to realize large-scale greenhouse gas emissions reductions. It brought experts from these fields together for the second annual CMB symposium on March 2-4, 2011.
At a March 1st Garrison Institute luncheon in New York City, Environmentalist, entrepreneur and author Paul Hawken discusses the compounding effects of excessive greenhouse gas emissions on an increasingly volatile period of earth’s existence.
