Product Description

Review

"Environmental sustainability is one of the most critical issues of our time. This book offers insights from behavioral science that can help us to understand how we got into this predicament, and what strategies can help us to achieve a more sustainable future.  This is an important and timely book."

-Wesley Schultz, Ph.D., California State University San Marcos

 

"This book is a highly inspiring collection of papers on the issue why people may not act in a sustainable way, even though they acknowledge the importance of doing so. Drawing on a wide range of perspectives from psychology and adjacent social science disciplines, it is convincingly shown why we cannot expect people to behave in a sustainable way just because we tell them to."

-Klaus G. Grunert, Ph.D., Aarhus University, Denmark
