Conservation Means Behavior Reduce consumption Purchasing Decisions (landscaping) New Technologies (low flow)

Reduce consumption

Purchasing Decisions (landscaping)

New Technologies (low flow)

A Little Psychology Scientific study of behavior People act for reasons Successful behavior change strategies require an understanding of the individual and situational factors that motivate and/or constrain behavior Many examples of failed (or not tested) and even boomerang effects

Scientific study of behavior

People act for reasons

Successful behavior change strategies require an understanding of the individual and situational factors that motivate and/or constrain behavior

Many examples of failed (or not tested) and even boomerang effects

Tools for Promoting Water Conservation 1. Education Involves disseminating information Assumes that lack of behavior results from lack of knowledge (this is generally not true) Consistently across behavioral domains, research has shown small-to-null effects

1. Education

Involves disseminating information

Assumes that lack of behavior results from lack of knowledge

(this is generally not true)

Consistently across behavioral domains, research has shown small-to-null effects

 

So You Want to Change Behavior?

 

Tools for Promoting Water Conservation 2. Price Cost directly affects behavior Problems with price triggers: Specificity (no spillover)—think incentives for low-flow toilets Framing (conservation now framed as “transaction”) Can potentially undermine long-term changes (Cialdini’s fence)

2. Price

Cost directly affects behavior

Problems with price triggers:

Specificity (no spillover)—think incentives for low-flow toilets

Framing (conservation now framed as “transaction”)

Can potentially undermine long-term changes (Cialdini’s fence)

Tools for Promoting Water Conservation 3. Awareness Crisis can induce change Individuals rally around a cause (for a short period of time) Crisis messages can boomerang if used for too long And what happens when the crisis passes?

3. Awareness

Crisis can induce change

Individuals rally around a cause (for a short period of time)

Crisis messages can boomerang if used for too long

And what happens when the crisis passes?

Tools for Promoting Water Conservation

Social Norms A promising alternative Conservation often means deviating from the norm (this message will boomerang) Need to promote community support: Your neighbors are conserving People will disapprove if you don’t conserve How much you consume relative to others

A promising alternative

Conservation often means deviating from the norm (this message will boomerang)

Need to promote community support:

Your neighbors are conserving

People will disapprove if you don’t conserve

How much you consume relative to others

Tools for Promoting Water Conservation VIDEO CLIP

Can we reduce consumption? Yes, but new tools will be required Price-triggers can work (but come with side effects) Information generally won’t work Awareness and crisis will work for a short period Fostering social norms provides a promising alternative
