The climatic changes that have been increasingly observed in recent years are to a large extent driven by human activities linked to resource overconsumption and overreliance on fossil energy sources. Developing a more sustainable lifestyle is one of the most pressing tasks facing our planet and its inhabitants. Using an interdisciplinary approach that combines psychology, affective sciences, behavioral economics, and neuroscience, our research group aims to contribute to this challenge by trying to understand the factors and mechanisms that drive decisions and behaviors related to sustainability, and to develop behavior change strategies to promote a more sustainable lifestyle.
