Despite increasing public awareness of issues around climate change mitigation and adaptation, energy use and other consequent impacts of modern daily lives continue to increase. This book answers the urgent call for effective engagement methods to foster sustainable lifestyles, community action, and social change. The first part of the book examines how different theoretical perspectives contribute to understanding individual and community engagement in a changing climate. The second part of the book offers case studies and practical guidance on engaging the public with climate change and fostering behaviour change.
Written by practitioners and academics from the UK and across the world, these chapters expand upon their underpinning assumptions and methods, examine in detail what works and what doesn't, and reflect on transferable lessons for future engagement approaches. Showcasing innovative thought and approaches from around the world, this book is essential reading for anyone working to foster real and lasting behavioural and social change.
'How do we break out of the hardened habits of mind and practice which prevent us from addressing climate change - and do so soon? This book is an important contribution to help answer this question. It offers many and encouraging, but no quick and easy answers to help create effective ways of engaging people while we still have hope of steering our journey in a desirable direction.'
