Give your environmentalism a psychosocial edge

Traditional messaging, systems innovation, and the powerful Quadrant of Engagement tool by psychologist and climate strategist Dr Renee Lertzman are all brought together on this course. The transdisciplinary approach will help you engage others in a whole new way.

Inspire behavioural change for climate change

Over the duration of the course, you’ll discuss why fear tactics are ineffective for facilitating climate action, why an empathic approach is more effective, and how to use the Quadrant of Engagement tool to map out strategies that motivate people to make important behavioural changes.

See Dr Lertzman’s environmentalism first-hand

This course does more than share Dr Lertzman’s message on how you can turn climate anxiety into action. It provides the ideal platform to teach you herself. Supported by the respected European Institute of Innovation Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community (EIT Climate-KIC), she’ll show you how to create truly effective engagement campaigns for climate change.

- The psychosocial aspects of climate change, such as conflicts, denial, ambivalence, and cognitive dissonance, mean we need a more empathetic approach when talking about climate change
