High School Partners

Climate-related decisions provide extremely rich examples for teaching purposes. Of particular interest to high school students and teachers are the international and cross-cultural aspects of climate related decisions and the way in which our work cuts across psychology, the social sciences, and the physical sciences. CRED has partnered with local high schools to bring our research on psychology, environmental decisionmaking, behavioral science and climate science to high school audiences.
