Waste Not! Design Workshop
As of 9/20 this event has sold out.

Saturday, September 22, 2012
10:00 to 11:30
Cornish College of the Arts

Presented by
Nikki Pfarr, Design Researcher & Strategist at Artefact

Why do people throw out things that they know are recyclable? Why does a smiley face on an energy bill change usage habits? What effect does labeling a trashcan "landfill" instead of "garbage" have on behavior? What would happen if you made a recycling slot machine?

Learn about how insights from behavioral economics and cognitive psychology can help us nudge people toward more sustainable and environmentally friendly habits. We'll spend some time learning about key findings from behavior change research, and then apply this knowledge to design challenges relevant to the Seattle urban environment. No advanced knowledge required.

Students, professionals and design enthusiasts are all encouraged to attend. No advanced knowledge or preparation is required to attend any of the workshops.
