We are happy to announce that the website of the interdisciplinary research project “Overcoming Obstacles and Disincentives to Climate Change Mitigation”, funded by JPI Climate, is now ready and available: https://change4climate.eu/.

This research project, which began in late 2020 and will be completed in early 2024, aims to improve scientific understanding of the obstacles and disincentives to climate change mitigation, and to understand how multimodal devices can act on these disincentives. The project is led by three teams: ours from UCLouvain (Belgium) in multimodal corpus linguistics, communication sciences and semiotics, a team of social psychologists and anthropologists from the Université Clermont Auvergne (France), and a team of discourse linguists from the University of Bergen (Norway).

This project combines the analysis of digital social networks (Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, Youtube) with other methods of investigation: surveys, experiments, interviews and field observation. In addition to the interest of this research for science, we also aim at a societal impact, notably through the drafting of recommendations for different stakeholders and the development of innovative forms of communication.

You will find on the website more information about the project, the publications of its members, and the first results and outputs. There is also the possibility to join our newsletter to keep you informed of the project progress.

We remain at your disposal for any question or curiosity concerning this project.


Dr Andrea Catellani

LPI of the project
