  1. Ger förståelse och nya petspektiv
    Malin, 3 september 2019

    Lättläst och tydlig. Mycket bra för att hitta nya vägar för dina budskap, information och kommunikation. Bra för dig som kört fast och känner "hur svårt kan det vara" då den skapar förståelse för varför det är så svårt att få till förändring.

  2. Psykologisk thriller om hur vi tänker på klimatet
    ZippySE, 23 juli 2018

    Per Espen Stoknes har skrivit en omfattande men ändå lättläst sammanfattning om beteendevetenskapen och psykologin bakom hur vi tänker och agerar (eller inte...) kring klimatförändringar. Han har dragit samman mängder av forskning inom ekonomi, beteendevetenskap och psykologi och gjorde resultaten begripliga.

    Utöver denna bedrift så har han även utvecklat förslag till hur vi tar oss vidare - hur vi kan hjälpa till med att stimulera en transformation till ett mer hållbart och värdefu... Läs hela recensionen

    Many people feel that money and what we perceive as the psyche, or soul, are bitter enemies do we choose money or soul, finance or feelings, markets or common humanity? This book traces the origins of these opposing concepts, and the feelings that...

  • Science Based Activism

    Per Espen Stoknes, Kjell A Eliassen

    The pathway from scientific knowledge, based on data, models and forecasts, to societal implications and policy advice is a perilous one. The shift from "is" to "ought" may be slippery, in terms of climate, biodiversity, regula...

Recensioner i media

"If information enlightened, then effective climate policies would have been put in place two decades ago, after the second IPCC assessment. The recent, massive fifth assessment enlightens only a teeny bit more. Stoknes' small, powerful, readable book enables us to build the social networks that will lead to action and change our old stories, the blinders that comfort so many along our path to destruction. Read it, get to work, and find joy in being effective."--Richard B. Norgaard, coauthor of The Climate Challenge Society and professor emeritus, University of California at Berkeley "The human brain is poorly equipped to cope with mind-numbing problems like climate change. Per Espen Stoknes tell us why--and then explains what we can do to change the way we think, act, and live. Highly recommended."--John Elkington, cofounder of Volans, SustainAbility, and Environmental Data Services (ENDS), and coauthor of The Breakthrough Challenge "Combining an entrepreneur's innovation with an economist's analytics and a psychologist's knowledge of human behavior, Per Espen Stoknes gives us a much-needed guide to moving beyond the politics and paralysis that generally cripple action on climate change, and provides us with concrete ways to inspire grounded hope for real climate solutions"--Heidi Cullen, chief scientist, Climate Central "In a fresh and intimate voice Per Espen Stoknes navigates the obstacles and collective denial of climate change. Drawing on his own deep love of nature he suggests ways to overcome our 'Deep Grief' by creating a spiritual connection with the air around us. In every way this is a book full of new perspectives and insights."--George Marshall, author of Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains are Wired to Ignore Climate Change "How, most effectively, to communicate the reality and ramifications of a slow-motion planetary meltdown? Whether you are a scientist or a CEO, an activist or a slacker, this book provides a simple toolkit for breaking down frozen attitudes. As a work that surveys a great deal of psychological research, it's at once accessible, practical, and - in its last third - richly reflective and evocative. In these concluding chapters Stoknes wrestles eloquently with the ways in which earthly calamity reverberates and sometimes wreaks havoc in any person's innermost sense of self and meaning."--David Abram, author of The Spell of the Sensuous "Mahatma Gandhi said 'First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.' We're in this last phase but to win we need to change tactics, from using guilt to draw attention to instead using persuasion to change behavior and policy at a mass scale. Per Espen Stoknes shows the way with this brilliant description of how to go with rather than against the flow of human nature and thus shift society to action. There is no more important challenge facing society today and Stoknes's contribution is crucial."--Paul Gilding, author of The Great Disruption "Science is no longer the bottleneck to action on climate change. Why do we so often ignore, deny, and resist the science? Why aren't we outraged, demanding change? In a style both rigorous and personal, Per Espen Stoknes explains why, and more importantly, offers strategies for success. A pleasure to read, this book can help us all become more understanding, more committed, more effective--and, along the way, more joyful."--John Sterman, professor, MIT Sloan School of Management, and author of Business Dynamics: Systems Thinking and Modeling for a Complex World "Stoknes offers expert insights, drawn from the discipline of psychology and the art of storytelling, to the high-stakes quandary of our time: Why the response to climate change has not, yet, come close to matching the overwhelming magnitude and sophistication of the scientific evidence. He peels away the multiple layers of passivity-inducing narratives,
