Collective Self-Regulation: The Case of Climate Change Mitigation
Grant number: DP130102229 | Funding period: 2013 - 2016
Solutions to contemporary societal problems such as climate change mitigation require cultural transformations, namely, widespread changes in the ideas and practices of community members. This project will examine how people may achieve this in part by regulating their own temptations and actions for the good of the community.
