Cognition and Behavior in Context: A Framework and Theories to Explain Natural Resource Use Decisions  in Social Ecological Systems

with Elke Weber | Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment and Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs at Princeton University

Join us for a series of talks by distinguished scholars on the future of sustainability research and education that aims to inspire, inform, and spark discussion about how we develop sustainability research and education at Stanford. 

Co-hosted by Stanford's Woods Institute for the Environment and School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences, this event series is open to Stanford faculty, graduate students, postdocs, and staff. These online talks are scheduled for a series of Fridays from 1 to 2:30 pm PT,  beginning April 2. Each speaker will present their sustainability research, followed by Q&A and informal conversation with Assistant Professor of Earth System Science Gabrielle Wong-Parodi, a center fellow at the Woods Institute.

Join us on Friday, May 28, from 1-2:30pm PT as Elke Weber, the Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment and Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs at Princeton University, will present a collaborative project that aims to address the challenge of integrating insights from the behavioral sciences into sustainability research and policy that stem from the abundance and fragmentation of theories in the social sciences and the difficulties of communicating and integrating research across disciplines.
