About the eBook

This timely Handbook provides a state-of-the-art overview of research on changing behaviour to become less environmentally harmful. Exploring how well-designed, contextually appropriate behaviour change interventions can work, it charts a path for future research that challenges traditional assumptions to maximise pro-environmental impact.

Drawing together work from diverse perspectives and disciplines, this Handbook makes six key recommendations for anyone working towards a more sustainable society. Giving a critical perspective on existing ways of thinking about research and policy, leading global scholars examine behavioural change in the public and private sphere. Through empirical analysis and theoretical reflection, they review key success stories and identify where new ideas and approaches are needed. Chapters discuss cutting-edge issues including citizen science, effectiveness of behavioural interventions, norm nudges, public participation in climate policy, and children’s pro-environmentalism.

The Handbook on Pro-Environmental Behaviour Change will be an invaluable resource for researchers and students of sustainability, social psychology, cultural and human geography, environmental governance, and natural resource management. It will also prove an essential guide for practitioners and activists seeking evidence-based strategies to induce change.
