Why is there a gap between what we say we want to do about climate change, and what we actually do, asks Caroline Ditlev-Simonsen?

Professor Jørgen Randers has been busy weaving science and activism together over the last almost 50 years. 21th of May BI Norwegian Business School hold a seminar, BI's Green Economics Seminar and Festschrift, in the honour of Jørgen Randers for exploring and enduring that tension.

BI researcher Caroline Ditlev-Simonsen was one of many presenters with the lecture "The Attitude-behavior Gap in Environmental Protection". Ditlev-Simonsen suggests it may be down to discrepancies between societal and individual attitudes towards environmental protection. You may see the whole speech above.
