Climate change prevention and mitigation require behavioral change or reconfiguration of behaviors and policies.

The goal of this class is to establish a transformational contact between expertise in geoscience and biological sciences and expertise in behavioral and cognitive sciences on environmental issues.

The course

1) Draws from the life sciences and geosciences to understand what has an impact on climate

change (i.e., the causal chains);

2) Draws from economics to understand how to regulate and incentivize citizens and firms to go

towards what has a positive impact; and

3) Draws from the cognitive science to understand the psychological and social side of the needed

change (how to understand and change individuals' and groups' behavior).

The class will meet weekly over the Fall semester. Multiple guest lecturers will be featured. In addition to lecture attendance, students will sign up in pairs or small groups for a semester-long assignment – exploratory project on a pre-defined topic, with advising from one of the course instructors.

Informations pratiques

On successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Grasp the complexity of issues surrounding planet-wide change

  • In particular, the trade-offs between effectiveness of measures and their implementation as the latter require active citizen collaboration

  • On the background of an understanding of what measures are effective and why, give the current state of knowledge
