Evans Hall Room 4210

Join us for a conversation with Nathaniel Stinnett, Founder and Executive Director at the Environmental Voter Project. We’ll hear about the early stages of Environmental Voter Project, from idea to launch to growth, as well as the role of this type of organization in today’s political climate.

This event is part of the Start-up Founder Practicum, so seating is extremely limited.  Lunch will be served.

About The Environmental Voter Project.

The environmental movement has a huge problem right now - voters don't prioritize environmental issues, so it's really hard to convince policy-makers to prioritize them (no matter who wins an election). The Environmental Voter Project (EVP) is a non-partisan nonprofit that's focusing on a simple, high-leverage solution to this problem: instead of trying to convince voters to care more about the environment, we (1) use data analytics to identify existing environmentalists who don't vote, and then (2) apply cutting-edge behavioral science to nudge them into being more consistent voters. In short, we don't try to change people's minds; we just change their habits.

Tsai CITY is also hosting a workshop with Nathaniel on Behavior Change Strategies for Societal Problems.  Learn more and register here.
