Locavore presents the final lecture in the Ecopedagogy series with:
Why We Are Blind To The Facts! — How a psychosocial approach to the challenges of climate change can help
from Julian Manley, chair of the Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) Scotland
— Dr Julian Manley is Co-Chair of the Climate Psychology Alliance Scotland and Executive Committee member for CPA UK.
He is also an academic at the University of Central Lancashire where his work is centred around psychosocial approaches to research and teaching.
He is a Tavistock qualified organisational consultant, his work is focussed on co-operatives and co-operation, the psychology of climate change and the use of social dreaming.
He has written and published about the psychology of climate change and has recently published two books (one an edited edition) on social dreaming, including work on social dreaming and climate change.
In this talk he will give an overview of what psychosocial approaches to climate change can teach us about denial, disavowal and the difficulties we have in tackling the issues, especially considering how critical the situation seems to be and how facts don’t appear to be sufficient to help us take appropriate action.
