NYU’s Educating for Sustainability Lecture

New York University

In her lecture, “Our Energy Efficiency Paradox: Psychological Barriers to ‘No-Brainer’ Solutions,” Elke Weber, CRED co-director, will speak about the psychological dimension of climate change within the broader context of human dimensions of climate change. She will address (a) human causes of, consequences of, and responses (adaptation and mitigation) to climate change and (b) the links between these aspects of climate change and cognitive, affective, motivational, interpersonal, and organizational responses and processes.

This lecture is part of the Educating for Sustainability series at NYU, which brings environmental scholars and leaders to NYU for public lectures, and was cosponsored by the Sustainability Task Force and the Environmental Studies program.
