The question of how to successfully facilitate the changes needed to avoid dangerous climate change has become a critical one for researchers and practitioners. In this article, I use Integral Theory to guide a scan of one important element of climate change response—household behavior change. The Integral scan is the rst step in a long-term research project to develop an integral ap- proach to household behavior change. It comprises an initial exploration of the perspectives needed to design behavior change strategies and suggests areas that will require further research as a more comprehensive map of initiatives emerges. I sketch out the process and principles of an integral ap- proach to household behavior change initiatives, and on designing translative and transformative approaches.
