  • Roberto Casati [référent·e]   directeur d'études, EHESS - directeur de recherche, CNRS / Institut Jean-Nicod (IJN)

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.

(Calendar will be communicated later. Sessions will be on the following topics)

Roberto Casati (IJN), Jean-Pierre Nadal (CAMS) Introduction, «Change: Why, Whose, Where, What: and How

 «Listen to science» Scientific expertise and scientific consensus processes within the IPCC : how to mobilise and communicate the latest scientific findings?

«Chaque petit geste compte» Implementation of interventions, correlations, causality: what changes for what effects?

«I do not believe in climate change» Opinion forming, critical thinking, and gullibility

« Think of the environment, do not print this e-mail » The controversial role of technological innovation: The environmental impact of digital technologies and the rebound effect

« A dead elephant is worth 15000 euros, a live elephant generates touristic revenues worth 1500000 euros ». Environmental Behavioral Economics: Can we put a price on nature?

« Modeling collective behavior - the tyranny of small decisions »

« Let’s raise the price of fuel by, say, just 10 cents » Evaluating public policies

« If science must go to the people, can the people go to science ? » Changing science. Corporate and public involvement, citizen and collaborative science: the cases of Tara Oceans and Plankton Planet.

 Marketplace session: extracurricular personal projects, ONG, external invitees.

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
