BEHAVIORAL CHANGE

BEHAVIORAL CHANGE

Behavior is the mirror in which everyone displays his own image.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Poet

Even when new technologies come out weekly, people can often be a mass of unchanging habits. This category covers those initiatives that educate people, raise awareness, and work towards better morals and habits at a global level. The best technologies can do little to save the planet if individuals do not decide to use them.
