Behavior Design Sprints

In the 21st century, organizations of all sizes are facing more complex conservation challenges and the ability to understand and change human and business behavior has become imperative. However, environmental and conservation leaders have expressed the need to go beyond awareness campaigns to catalyze behavior change. In fact, research has shown that information alone does not change behaviors and attitudinal change does not guarantee sustainable behaviors.

Environmental and conservation leaders need a new set of models and methods to design for human needs, emotions, and biases to target specific behaviors for clear and measurable change. This is exactly what designers offer. Our team at Design Pathways transfers proven design methods from the private and social impact sectors to help organizations design and execute programs for behavior change and enable them to achieve their impact goals. 

Whether you are designing a new program, improving an existing program, or simply upskilling your team, we can work with you to design a learning experience to fit your needs. 
How will you benefit from learning with Design Pathways?

At Design Pathways, your learning and conservation goals come first. We know that the best way to learn is through doing, so we guide you through a creative process to apply design methods and develop solutions to address your real-world challenges and needs.
Work with us to influence behavior change with new skills, tools, and confidence.
