Take part in a webinar on behavioural change and social transformation

The Knowledge, Learning, And Societal Change Alliance (KLASICA), a new research effort focusing on behavioural change and societal transformation, is hosting its first webinar. The event will be held on 30 January 2017 at 13:00 UTC. It will feature a 30-minute presentation by Heinz Gutscher, professor emeritus of social psychology at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, followed by a 30-minute discussion. Gutscher is a member of the Science Committee of Future Earth.

According to the event description, “the webinar aims at basic social psychological preconditions for behavior change and societal change.” It will examine:

Why are people normally not enthusiastic about change; what are keys to individual change; the fundamental role of values and how knowledge about values can be used in the change process; how does individual change lead to societal change; what types of change; what are objects of change; what is the role of scientists within change processes; what practical tools of change are available?

KLASICA is hosted by the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam, Germany.
