Hello, and welcome to my blog! Here, I will be taking you through the journey of my Independent Study, “Psychological Attitudes towards Climate Change”.
This independent study will be focused specifically on observing what psychological and neurological factors (including a person’s community, thought process, political beliefs, background, etc) influence climate change action, inaction, and skepticism. After researching climate change, neuroscience, and psychology, conducting interviews, and exploring resources both in person and online, my goal is to build a final product (such as an activity or presentation) that leverages the psychological attitudes I have observed to motivate members of my community to more actively work towards combating climate change!

I’ll be updating this weekly with descriptions of what I’ve learned and the progress I’ve made. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy this journey! 🙂
Below are posts describing the work I’ve done so far, in chronological order starting from the bottom.
