  • Article type Podcast
  • Publication date 01 Sep 2020

Episode two examines how we can help bridge the gap between the clear scientific evidence of climate change and the lack of effective climate action in practice. We explore how behavioural insights can be integrated into climate projects and climate change advocacy for better impact and positive change. The episode includes commentary from three IEU team members involved with behavioural science research. 

Mr. Cornelius Kruger, Research Assistant Consultant and also a member of the IEU’s Behavior and Design Lab “BaDLab”. Cornelius’s paper ‘Going the Last Mile: Behavior Science and Investments in Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation’ won the Best Paper award at the Climate 2020 Online Conference. 

Ms. Iben Hjorth, IEU’s Communications and Uptake Intern, who recently published a blog titled “Let’s talk about evidence – behavioural insights to help us communicate”

Dr. Archi Rastogi, who is Evaluation Specialist at the IEU. His blog “Will the Climate Strikes Create Impact?”, argued that using behavioural insights could boost the impact of climate strikes.
