What Motivates Individuals to Act on Climate Change?
Linda Steg (University of Gröningen) outlined the role of values and past behaviour in shaping future action. Motivations play a key role in climate actions and responses to climate policy. The media is a space that reflects waves, but finds it difficult to create them.
This public talk was held along side:
Imagining a Different Future
Climate Justice Conference
The Faculty of Law at the University of Tasmania, with the support of local institutions and the University of Utrecht Ethics Institute, hosted a multidisciplinary conference in Hobart from 8-9 February 2018 examining the barriers to responding to climate change and implementing climate justice, and proposing ways forward. Despite the Paris Agreement, there are real concerns the prevailing neoliberal economic and political model, particularly with the move to more insular, nationalistic, fragile politics, cannot respond effectively to climate change and excludes key considerations such as ethics and justice.The Conference and associated community event looked at barriers and strategies at the international and local levels.
Videos and Podcasts from the conference are available on the Knowledge Hub.
