DecarboNet – A Decarbonisation Platform for Citizen Empowerment and Translating Collective Awareness into Behavioural Change
The DecarboNet project ended in June 2016.
A lack of collective awareness negatively impacts perceived personal efficacy, which hampers efforts to address societal problems. DecarboNet is a multidisciplinary effort to tackle this problem by identifying determinants of collective awareness, translating awareness into behavioural change, and providing novel methods to analyse and visualise the underlying processes. The project’s core innovations are built around a context-specific repository of carbon reduction strategies. This “decarbonisation methodology” will increase awareness not only of existing problems, but also of best-practice solutions and the impact of individual actions.
