Short description

Greenhouse gas emissions, exposure to negative climate effects and attitudes to climate issues vary between different groups in society. Depending on where you live, your gender or race/ethnicity or financial status, you are affected in different ways. In this research project we want to explore the social dimensions and affects due to climate change to make future climate strategies more democratic and inclusive. The project aims to develop equality based decision-making data and educational material for Swedish authorities working with environmental adaption.
