EAERE Summer School in Resource and Environmental Economics

Behavioural Environmental Economics

The Institute of Economics, Faculty of Economic Social Sciences, the Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change at the University of Graz, Austria, and the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE) are organizing the 2021 – 2025 EAERE and Uni Graz European Summer School series in Resource and Environmental Economics.

The Summerschool for 2022 takes places June 3rd – 9th at Castle Seggau, Leibnitz (Austria). The topic is:

Behavioural Environmental Economics
The scientific as well as political interest in behavioral responses to environmental policy as well as measures beside the traditional policy instruments (like taxes, permits or command and control) has grown considerably in the last twenty years. “Behavioral schemes” like providing information can have significant impacts on environmental decision making. Framing can influence the individual response to environmental policy. Strengthening social norms, changing peoples’ perception, self-identity and preferences may have stronger effects on individual behavior than prices. A related and important topic in this field, which recently got some scientific attention, is the called “green nudging”. The literature on this topic is broad and analyzes the impact of changing the default option of energy consumption or reduction of food waste and the impact of providing information on social comparison on pro-environmental behavior. The EAERE summer school on this topic will focus on the theoretical foundations of behavioral economics and psychology, empirical studies as well as experimental evidence Hence, main feature of this summer school is its interdisciplinary nature, with economists and psychologists.
