Global Change and Cognition

Abstract

We are living in a period of considerable global change. From climate change to peak oil we are facing multiple challenging problems that need to be managed carefully and wisely. Cognitive science has much to say about how people are likely to view those problems and how they will respond to them. This symposium will shed some light on those cognitive processes and how they can help---or indeed hinder---the problems we are facing.
