Community-based social marketing – a Compost Perspective Webinar, Zoom

Monday, November 2nd, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm CST

Success of any composting program in your community hinges on the support of local residents. Most often, when introducing an idea, we focus on the technical side of things, like how to do it, but what if we focused more on the ‘people aspect’ of getting others composting? What makes people want to compost and what doesn’t? Community Based Social Marketing (CBSM) combines marketing with psychology to create a powerful approach to facilitating behaviour change. In this presentation, you’ll learn about what CBSM is, the basics of how to use it in your next project, and several examples of how to apply it to sustainability behaviours. This presentation is a great fit for anybody working in sustainability, whether you’re trying to encourage correct sorting of waste, promoting active transportation, encouraging healthy habits, and more.
