Behavioural Change
A. Ruepert, PhD

Who doesn’t love lying on a tropical beach or watching animals on a safari? Although most people do like to enjoy nature and appreciate its beauty, this does not always prevent them from harming the environment. Which factors induce environmentally harmful behaviour and what motivates people to act pro-environmentally and accept pro-environmental policies? How does the changing environment affect us?

Questions like these are addressed in this lecture. You will acquire theoretical knowledge and get a glimpse on the methodological skills needed to understand different pathways to encourage pro-environmental behaviour. You will learn about some of the studies we have conducted to understand which factors influence pro-environmental behaviour. You will also evaluate different campaigns that are developed and used to encourage pro-environmental behaviour.
