Join Rare’s Center for Behavior & the Environment for BE.Hive: Behavioral Solutions to Water Pollution, a unique summit to explore water pollution through the lens of human behavior.
The world relies on clean water. Yet pollution threatens nearly every body of water on earth around the globe. Human behavior lies at the center of this issue, both as the problem and the solution. At BE.Hive: Behavioral Solutions to Water Pollution, we will explore the latest academic insights from behavioral science, take inspiration from the world’s leading environmentalists, be ignited by artists, athletes and storytellers, and identify best-in-class opportunities to help you apply behavioral insights to reduce water pollution.
