Jana Köhler: Climate action and negative Stereotypes


The current discussion around the climate protests show that the social perception of environmental activists is often very negative. With her research, Jana Köhler wants to help promote climate- and environmentally-friendly behaviour among the population.

Jana Köhler is a doctoral candidate at the Vienna Doctoral School in Cognition, Behaviour and Neuroscience (VDS CoBeNe), studying societal perceptions of environmentalists and environmental activists.

"We can only have a healthy planet and healthy people if we start protecting the climate and the environment," says Jana Köhler. By investigating human experiences and behaviours, she is making important contributions to her discipline "Environmental Psychology," which falls under the behavioural sciences.
