GLRPPR Sector Resource: Encouraging Sustainable Behaviour

Encouraging Sustainable Behaviour

There is now a great deal of inform­a­tion avail­able about how to pro­mote sus­tain­able beha­viours -- but it can be con­fusing identi­fying the evid­ence that really matters. This com­pre­hensive col­lec­tion of cli­mate change com­mu­nic­a­tion resources provides a clear, straight­for­ward and prac­tical list of the many guides and hand­books that pro­mote sus­tain­able beha­viours among indi­viduals and com­munities, and an out­line of the key find­ings from studies of public per­cep­tions of cli­mate change. Talking Climate also con­tains a series of more focused sum­maries of research on spe­cific aspects of sus­tain­able beha­viour. Targeting social net­works is an important but often neg­lected method of influ­en­cing sus­tain­able beha­viour. This guide describes the best research on how to use social net­works and social norms to encourage not only indi­viduals but groups and com­munities to engage in more sus­tain­able pat­terns of behaviour.
