ISCBC Youth Summit Series: The Science of Behavioural Psychology

Date: June 11, 2021

Time: 10:30 am - 12:30 pm PT

What drives social change? Learn how behavioural psychology encourages positive actions in this investigative workshop, part one of the 2021 ISCBC Youth Summit Series.

ISCBC volunteers will explore examples from invasive species research and successful behaviour change programs from North America and Australia. Whether you are just starting to promote better behaviours or are wanting to increase the effectiveness of existing programs, you will benefit from the knowledge of how to include behavioural psychology in your community service efforts. The techniques you will learn in this training are easy to use and very effective!
