EPA Region 5 partnered with the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa to create a Community-Based Social Marketing (CBSM) Training Guide. This training guide provides an overview of how to use the CBSM process to increase the adoption of sustainable behaviors within the community.
Some features of the CBSM Training Guide include:
- PowerPoint overview of CBSM that you could use to educate your team or other stakeholders you would like to involve in designing a CBSM project;
- Checklists for when and how to use specific CBSM strategy tools;
- Case study on how the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College increased its recycling rate by 41% using the CBSM process; and
- Recycling Toolkit that provides step-by-step templates for conducting the CBSM process to promote recycling or other sustainable behaviors, based on Fond du Lac’s experience.You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
