The EcoConcierge Pilot: Social Capital, Wellness, and Low-carbon Lifestyles

Combining the latest research and real-world experiences from projects like BedZED and the Blair Apartments, Greg Searle of BioRegional North America explores “persuasion design”, metering, and operating solutions for behavior change. The role of EcoConcierges in building operations is examined: learn how 42% of household carbon savings at BedZED derived from behavior change, and how household empowerment coaching plays a role at the Blairs Apartments based on David Gershon’s EcoTeams approach. Greg also explores “Design for Sustainable Behavior”.
