Young people’s trust in climate change science and their climate engagement
What role does trust in climate change science play in young people’s climate engagement, meaning making, and identity development? This is a topic that Maria Ojala discusses in an article published in Children’s Geographies
The article focuses on the emotional dimension of trust or distrust in climate change science and how it relates to young people’s engagement at two levels: how they relate to climate change at large, if they worry or deny climate change, and how they deal with ambivalence regarding behavioral advice about, for example, climate-friendly food choices.
