TIPPING+ paper: Unpacking the psychosocial dimension of decarbonization between change and stability
The open access paper entitled “Unpacking the psychosocial dimension of decarbonization between change and stability: A systematic review in the social science literature” produced by Fulvio Biddau, Sonia Brondi and Paolo Cottone, is published at MDPI’s Sustainability Journal!
The paper provides a systematic overview of the psychosocial contribution to decarbonisation studies and critically discusses current trends. 404 articles were reviewed illustrating that the field is equally attentive to psychosocial processes operating at different levels, the individual, community and socio-cultural levels.
The results indicate some problematic trends in the literature, including a bias toward specific agents and geographies overlooking mesoscale actors and the absent of biophysical processes, people–nature relationships, and the role of emotions in understanding the #psychology of agents and decarbonization.
