Climate Change Anxiety

What are the worries related to climate change among young people? Climate change challenges go beyond environmental damage, it also poses threats to psychological and emotional well-being that are starting to be recognized. Currently, climate change anxiety is associated with perceptions about climate change. Identifying different aspects of people’s perceptions (emotions, cognition, somatic expressions, etc.) regarding climate change, can help to identify factors that encourage change beyond ecological action (i.e., community building, education, promotion of human rights, etc.). For this project there are datasets available, and you can use them to explore different research questions. All students are welcome to apply. Background in Psychology, Social sciences, Ecology and Evolution, Global health, or other sustainability/ health/ human behavior-related fields.
