Study Description
We are seeking professionals ages 18 and older in the following fields:

  • Behavior change
  • Conservation
  • Conservation financing or funding
  • Environmental policy or regulation
  • Evaluation

We invite you to take part in a study that surveys the state of behavioral science in environmental policy and programs.

This study seeks to better understand practitioners’ views on the use of behavioral science in program development and evaluation.* We ask volunteers to complete a survey lasting approximately 15 minutes.

Please call 803-446-4833 or email at5ef@virginia.edu for more information

Compensation: You will not receive any payment. However, your responses may help challenge the dominant approaches to environmental policy and program design.

Thanks again for your interest! We are no longer taking survey responses at this time.

*If the types of programs I’m referring to are unclear, below are examples of what behaviorally-centered environmental solutions can look like.
