The Myth of Apathy: Going Beyond Behaviour Change

17:30 – 19:30 – 20 November 2012

The UCL Energy Institute of the University College London has invited Dr. Renee Lertzman, a strategic communications specialist focusing on the deep psychological dimensions of sustainability, to talk about her current research.

In the seminar, Dr. Lertzman, currently teaching at the Royal Roads University in Canada, addresses how we perceive environmental threats and climate change, not only cognitively but also emotionally! This is her notion of “Going Beyond Behaviour Change”, as it´s not just a description of which behavioural change needs to happen and how we can make it happen, but a look upon the status quo of how and why a more sustainable lifestyle is incorporated, or not, by people.
