Culturo-Behavior Science for a Better World; Online; 2020
Why are we not acting to save the world? Skinner asked this question in an address to the American Psychological Association in 1982 (see also Skinner, 1987). Nearly 40 years later, we are revisiting it at a time when we face extraordinary threats to our planet and its inhabitants from global warming; when populations around the world suffer from multiple systemic ills, such as extreme economic inequality; when public health systems have failed a great majority; when many people cannot access clean water or afford basic medical care; and when significant numbers die of preventable causes, including smoking, alcohol overconsumption, obesity, and prescription and illicit drug overdoses.
ABAI’s Culturo-Behavior Science Conference explored why we are not acting to save the world in these domains and how we can help ensure a better future. The conference brought together scientists across related disciplines to explore how can we contribute.
