CHURCH COFFEE AND LECTURE
MARIANNE AASEN, CICERO


In order to achieve its climate targets, Norway must implement a number of new measures affecting people's everyday lives. So it is important to understand what people think of such measures and about climate change, and how we relate to them. Marianne Aasen presents what we know about Norwegians' behaviour, perceptions, norms and attitudes in relation to emission cuts and the transition to a low-emissions society.

Marianne Aasen is a researcher at the CICERO Center for International Climate Research and has a PhD from the University of Ås in Norway. She specialises in interdisciplinary research on the transition to a low-emissions society and on issues related to people's response to climate change, climate policy and measures to be taken. Currently she is engaged in a project (ACT) seeking to understand how behaviour, norms, knowledge and measures interact over time. In this project, a first database is being developed on Norwegians' behaviour, perceptions, norms and attitudes related to emission cuts and transition to a low-emission society.
