Researchers funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and European partners are contributing to a better understanding of how climate change affects society.
The researchers are engaging with societal actors through innovative approaches that trigger transformational change. The projects, funded through the JPI Climate SOLSTICE programme, are led by the social sciences and humanities communities, and focus on three interlinked themes:
- social justice and participation
- sense making, cultural meaning and risk perceptions
- transformative finance and economy.
To tackle these crucial areas and contribute to the objective of understanding societal transformation in the face of climate change, JPI SOLSTICE has funded the following projects.
As chair of JPI Climate, Dr Frank McGovern, said:
Climate change will affect us and our society in almost everything that we do. We need to manage a major transitional transformation, or it will manage us. JPI SOLSTICE offers an opportunity for the whole social sciences and humanities communities to come together to address these challenges.
