Two New Earth System Governance Flagship publications released!

The latest in the Earth System Governance Cambridge Elements series is now out:

“Changing our ways” by Peter Newell, Freddie Daley and Michelle Twena. Elements are short, concise, and policy-relevant reads. They are open source for readers. In this Element, the authors develop an account of the role of behaviour change that is more political and social by bringing questions of power and social justice to the heart of their enquiry in order to appreciate how questions of responsibility and agency are unevenly distributed within and between societies. Read more here.
