    • European Observatory of the New Human Condition
  • Summary
    • The Observatory seeks new insights into the human condition as it relates to global climate change, to explore its root problems and possible solutions. The Observatory will bring together academics, senior executives and other stakeholders in our forum workshops for dialogue and action on global climate change issues. The research undertaken in our three forum workshops will take us beyond rational choice theory and behavioral decision theory towards a broader understanding of:Perceptions of resources, technology, and risk in an age of scarcity and abundance; Conceptualizations of time and differential discounting of future outcomes. Strategies for arriving at "rational" decisions, and:Pro-social behavior in common-property resource dilemmas.
