Collectively, we know that climate change is a serious threat to our future, and we know what we need to do to avoid the worst effects. But we don’t seem to be doing it, at least not fast enough. So why is our behaviour not in line with the science? There’s lots of reasons but I personally feel that we can find out many of the answers if we take a look at the human psyche.
The Your Brain on Climate podcast series examines the psychology of climate change: what we think and why we think it. Experts in topics such as grief, connection and pluralistic ignorance join the host, David Powell, a campaigner and engagement expert, for engaging and uplifting discussions. I find they help me to understand a bit more about why we think in the ways that we do and how to potentially harness that when communicating about climate change.
