Event format: 
Climate change poses the greatest threat to future generations that urgently needs a concerted effort by policy makers, businesses, individuals, and the scientific community. Given the significant effect of human behaviour, economics, psychology, philosophy and behavioural science play a key role in assessing and designing policies that mitigate the effects of human activities on climate. The main purpose of the summer school is to bring together perspectives from a variety of disciplines and introduce participants to novel methodologies and policy challenges of tackling climate change.

The Summer School is targeted at postgraduate and PhD students from the fields of economics, psychology, philosophy, environmental sciences, and social policy, as well as the general audience from the public and the private sectors who are interested in these topics. The School will take place at University of Warwick, United Kingdom. It will feature series of lectures by distinguished economists, psychologists, philosophers and behavioural scientists who have made significant contributions to these fields. The school will also be a platform for conversation among the lecturers and other participants with ample opportunities for discussions.
