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.
