A Mindset for the Anthropocene (AMA)

Growth and consumption, competition and rivalry: These ideas shape our behaviour, our lifestyles, and our societies. The transformation towards a sustainable society calls for a fundamental change in thinking and a willingness to question deep-seated attitudes, convictions, and world views. This project considers the role of mindfulness in decision-making around sustainability issues, and explores how shifts in human behaviour and thinking occur and can be facilitated in order to move towards a more cooperative and sustainable future. Support is also provided to other researchers at the IASS who are involved in projects that seek to foster collective behavioural change.
