The second Newsletter of the project 202CM


In the framework of the project 2O2CM “Overcoming Obstacles and Disincentives to Climate Change Mitigation: A cross-cutting approach by human and social sciences” the second Newsletter, which mostly focuses on the French and Norwegian teams of the project, is published.

First, let’s take a look at one of our privileged field partners: Chastreix-Sancy National Nature Reserve (Puy-de-Dôme, France). Sancy has an area of 1895 hectares and an altitude ranging from 1100 m to 1885 m. It contains a great wealth of fauna (chamoix, ibexes, vultures) and flora. It is home to 5 municipalities: Chastreix, Mont-Dore, Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise, Picherande, Chambon-sur-Lac. The total population of these villages is 3,713 (2020 census). The main economic activities are pastoralism, forestry and tourism.

In the project, an observation grid has been created by dir. Michel Streith, CNRS Research director, in order to understand how French farmers of Chastreix-Sancy, who are important actors directly involved in environmental activities, and laypeople (visitors of this natural site) make sense of climate change and of climate change mitigation behaviours.
