Making sense of climate change: A study of the formation and maintenance of social representation
The aim of this project is to understand how lay people form and maintain social representations about climate change. The project will analyze how lay people use different communicative strategies to make sense of conflicting messages. Special emphasis will be put on sense-making practices in relation to the concepts of "trust" and "agency".
