Lessons from Covid-19 for mobilising climate action
Tue 5 April 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
In this talk, Professor Whitmarsh will draw lessons from responding to COVID-19 for mobilising public action on climate change. Both risks require significant behavioural change and have certain features in common, but there are also important differences – and reasons to think responding to climate change will be more challenging. Nevertheless, she will show that through targeted communication and a range of policy measures, significant behaviour change to mitigate climate change can be achieved as it has been for COVID.
Professor Lorraine Whitmarsh MBE is a British psychologist and environmental scientist at the University of Bath. She serves as Director of the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations. Her research considers how the public engage with climate change, energy and transport.
