Private Climate Governance
While the U.S. and other national governance systems are arguably not taking sufficient and certainly not sufficiently urgent action against climate change, other inroads may work better. Further, new behavioral science shows new ways of persuading both corporations and individuals to think and act in better ways in relation to climate change. In this episode, EinStrong law and policy director Myanna Dellinger, Esq., will talk with Dr. Kristian S Nielsen of Cambridge University about private and public climate governance for climate change mitigation in the U.S. and beyond.
Dr. Kristian S Nielsen is a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge. Kristian received a PhD from Copenhagen Business School in 2019 with a dissertation examining the role of self-regulation in environmental behavior change. Kristian’s current research focuses on behavior change in the context of climate change mitigation, biodiversity conservation, and sustainable clothing consumption.
