The Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) was formed in 2009 to provide a forum for municipal sustainability leaders to learn from each other and accelerate achivement of ambitious city sustainability goals. The USDN has identified behavorial change knowledge as critical to advancing the adoption and scaling of sustainability practices.
Surdna recently provided funding for members of the USDN to attend the 2011 Behavior, Energy and Climate Change (BECC) conference. The conference focused on understanding the nature of individual and organizational behavior and decision making, and using that knowledge to accelerate our transition to an energy-efficient and low carbon economy.
Following the conference the USDN, in conjunction with the Sustainable Cities Institute, launched a blog series for attendees to share their personal and professional insights and key take-aways from the conference.
