Wann sind wir als Menschen bereit etwas für die Umwelt und das Klima zu tun? Und wie können wir Akzeptanz schaffen für Interventionen, die der Umwelt gut tun? Der Forschungsbereich der Umweltpsychologie versucht genau solche Fragen zu beantworten. Die Expertin Cathérine Hartmann der ZHAW der Abteilung angewandte Psychologie wird im Rahmen eines Vortrags auf diese Fragen eingehen.
When are we as human beings ready to do something for the environment and the climate? And how can we create acceptance for interventions that have a positive impact on the environment? The research area of environmental psychology tries to answer exactly these questions. Expert Cathérine Hartmann from the Department of Applied Psychology (ZHAW) will be holding a talk on these questions.

On Thursday 3.12 and Thursday 17.12 we are co-hosting the Climate Collage Workshop, which highlights and explains causes and consequences of climate change. This is a ‘serious game’ based on collective intelligence and creativity. The content is based on IPCC reports.
Even if you are already aware of climate change, join and get surprised to see what the collective intelligence can achieve! Approximately 100 000 people in France and all over the world already took part in similar workshops. Now we want to help to expand the game and its positive effects in Switzerland. For more information on the initiative visit climatecollage.org
This workshop will take place on Zoom. Register until 30.11. here: https://bit.ly/2IQbF4B

On November 18th at 18:00, we will host an online event to get to know the fossil free movement, understand why divestment is an essential step on the way to a carbon neutral world and talk about opportunities to mobilize ETH. We will also have guest speakers from University of Göttingen, who made their university divest in 2018.
The first online #DivestETH online event was a success, huge thanks to everyone who attended and to Johanna and Jondalar from Fossil Free Göttingen for the inspirational conversation! Our efforts have, however, only started and we need you to make ETH #FossilFree: you can join us online on November 30 at 19:00 for our Onboarding meeting and find out about different ways to contribute to this campaign. We look forward to welcoming everyone interested!

It started with an idea from ETH students. How can we effectively protect our climate? Since then myclimate has grown considerably and today offers the possibility of offsetting greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere through CO2-reducing projects. Kathrin Dellantonio, Head of Corporate Partnerships at myclimate, will report on how the whole thing works exactly. Afterwards Q&A.

Haven’t we all been there - standing in the grocery shops and staring at the same fruit, thinking which one is worse for the environment, and also our budget? The banana flown to us from Colombia or the apple locally produced in Switzerland but refrigerated for months? These decisions are not easy when it comes to everyday choices from buying flight tickets to choosing house heating hours.
To make your life easier and to help you make better decisions as a consumer, we bring to you a fun evening filled with exciting prizes and a Q&A on sustainable lifestyle choices! The zoom link will be sent after registration.
This game will be hosted by Ph.D. students and researchers from the environmental engineering institute at ETH Zurich, specialized in understanding household consumption footprints.
You can register in a group of 2-5 or individually (and you will be allocated to a group) and get competitive! Registration link
Cook with us towards a more sustainable food system!
The challenges facing the food system today are immense. How can food be produced in a way that takes environmental issues, consumer preferences and the needs of people who grow, harvest and process the food into account? And what can you as a consumer do to make your contribution to a more sustainable food system? During this event, you will cook a 3-course meal at home (guided by TASTELAB) while using sustainable, regional and delicious ingredients. While cooking, you’ll learn more about our food system, and explore a few of the ingredients we’ll use. Choose if you want to cook alone, or with your flatmates, family etc. and enjoy a meal together. You will receive the shopping list in advance, all you need to have is a kitchen and a laptop. Cook your way towards a sustainable future, one meal at a time!
Registration open to all, sign-up until 20 November 2020 here.
