Behaviour Change for a Circular Economy – How it works and why it pays off

Many circular economy solutions, such as recycling, reuse and refurbishment schemes, will only be successful if people change their behaviour. Join our concise 60-minute webinar to learn about the different levers of behaviour change and why behaviour change programmes pay off both in terms of programmatic and financial results!

You will have the opportunity to interact with behaviour change experts from Rare’s Center for Behavior & the Environment, Delterra, German Development Institute and University of the Andes. This event is co-hosted by the PREVENT Waste Alliance and the Circular Economy Coalition for Latin America & the Caribbean.

The event will take place on Tuesday 29 March, 9am – 10am Eastern Time (UTC-5) / 4pm – 5pm Central European Summer Time (UTC+2) via MS Teams.

Please note that this event has a specific focus on Latin American countries and is therefore scheduled for this time zone. We will organise another behaviour change event tailored for the Asian time zone.
