How to Save the World | A Podcast About the Psychology of Environmental Action

By Katie Patrick

What *really* gets people to make an environmental change? Environmental engineer, designer, and author, Katie Patrick, takes you on a wild intellectual journey into the heart of the environmental psyche. For each episode, Katie hunts down the academic literature on the psychology of what gets people to take pro-environmental action and interviews experts in behavioral science and gamification from top research labs such as Harvard, MIT, and Stanford University to unearth teachings you can use in your campaign, program, or startup. Warning: best for deep sustainability nerds.
