環境安全原論特論

Environment-Behavior studies and environmental policy in Europe: Knowledge co-production approaches in transitions towards sustainability.
Creating environmental knowledge among citizens and stakeholders who meet policymakers is not easy unless it is through a process of promotion of public participation. Participation plays a role both in natural resource management and in the definition of environmental risk policies. The increasing environmental awareness of citizens the world over has promoted considerable demand for participation in environmental policy making. Our basic thesis is that participation and collaboration are impossible without bi-directional communication. With respect to environmental risk issues, participation always involves communication and communication always involves participation. Some relevant points to participatory policy-making on risk, drawn from the case of the Prestige disaster (García-Mira et al., 2006, 2007), as well as some reflections on the political and economic consequences of the disaster, will be commented in this presentation.

On the other hand, the role of Environment-Behavior research for giving answers to key social challenges has been more and more recognized. This presentation will show also some areas of psychological research providing useful conceptual frameworks for understanding key aspects of global problems, as well as methodologies for exploring interactions between people and the environment. The discussion of human factors involved in transitions towards more sustainable societies and the study of psychological, spatial and temporal processes involved in human behavior, were themes in which the European environmental psychology has carried out a lot of activity in the last two decades. This presentation tries to give a vision of this developments in sustainability research, underlying some contributions from trans-disciplinary perspectives in dialogue with other sciences for resolve problems derived from climate change in a collaborative way and its application to environmental policy (García Mira et al. 2016; García Mira and Dumitru, 2014, 2017; Uzzell et al., 2017).
