Climate Change Emotions Project Launch

  • by

We are happy to announce the official launch of the project “Understanding patterns of emotional responses to climate change and their relation to mental health and climate action taking” funded by Norway Grants.

The aim of our research project is to understand and describe how people react emotionally to climate change and what it means for our mental health and climate action taking. To this end, a series of studies using a questionnaire and experimental methods will be conducted. 

The project unites the scientists from Poland and Norway and across the disciplines of clinical psychology, environmental psychology and neuroscience.

“I am very much looking forward to get this exciting project going comparing climate emotions in Poland and Norway, two countries which in very different ways are connected to fossil fuels and the transition to carbon neutrality” says Christian A. Klöckner, norwegian partner and Professor of Social Psychology at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

Stay tuned!
