Usage of carbon budgets to motivate reduction of carbon emissions (English)
Abstract [en]

The problem of rising temperatures and climate change is of great importance to all life. It has been made a global target by the UN and 194 countries has signed the Paris agreement which states a goal of keeping average global temperature raises two degrees below pre-industrial temperatures. Despite this, it is not clear what needs to be done. One thing for sure is that greenhouse gas emissions and ways to lessen them must be communicated in a concrete way in order to influence people and help fight climate change. This study explored how carbon budgets could be a tool for making greenhouse gas emissions less of an abstract concept. The study also examined how the implementation intentions-model could be used for increasing motivation in implementing behaviours in order to motivate reducing emissions of students. The focus of the study was to motivate participants to decrease consumption of aerial transportation and meat as these were ruled as important sources of emission for students.

The study showed statistically significant results of whether these methods can be used in influencing participants behaviours.

Abstract [sv]

Problem med klimatförändringar är av större vikt än någonsin tidigare för allt liv på jorden. FN har gjort bekämpning av klimatförändringar till ett av sina globala mål och 194 länder har skrivit under Paris-avtalet och dess mål att hålla temperaturökningen motsvara de under två grader förindustriella temperaturer. Att motivera folk till att minska sina utsläpp är ett viktigt steg i kampen mot klimatförändringar, men hur det ska gå till har inte konkretiserats. Denna studie utforskar hur koldioxidbudgetar skulle kunna vara ett verktyg för att omvandla utsläppen av växthusgaser till ett mindre abstrakt koncept. Studien utforskade även hur implementation intention-modellen kunde användas för att öka studenters motivation att implementera nya beteende för att minska sina utsläpp. Studiens fokus var att motivera deltagarna att minska sin konsumtion av kött och långväga transport med flyg då dessa är stora utsläppskällor.

Studien har kunnat visa statistiskt signifikant resultat om hur dessa metoder kan användas för att påverka deltagarnas medvetenhet om sina utsläpp.
