Why do we research emotions in the context of climate change?
The aim of our research project is to understand and describe how climate change makes us feel and what it means for our mental health and climate action taking. To this end, we will conduct a series of studies using questionnaire and experimental methods. The research will be based on data collected in Poland and Norway, two countries heavily dependent on fossil fuels, but with a different social and individual perception regarding the urgency of climate action.
What do we want to accomplish?
"I hope that nature will prove to be resilient. And adaptable. And that we will not manage to destroy the ability of nature to adapt itself. That’s a different kind of hope."
