Inhalt: The seminar will pick up current public debates around sustainability challenges such as biodiversity loss, climate change or nuclear danger. Psychology and the behavioral sciences more broadly can help addressing these challenges through developing empirically tested interventions about (1) when and how people understand communications about those challenges and (2) how they behave – and can improve behaviors – in face of such challenges. Policy makers often need to make decisions about how to facilitate or inhibit specific behaviors, ranging from healthy and sustainable eating to distaster preparedness in face of local or global large-scale risks. Before implementing such interventions on larger scales, it is crucially important to evaluate the quality of the underlying scientific evidence about intervention effectiveness, by scrutinizing amount, type as well as evidence quality: Evidence may comprise single studies, expert surveys, systematic reviews or meta-analyses. This involves reflecting on different types and degrees of uncertainty in evidence, resulting from e.g., different measurement methods, methods and designs, over contradictory or imprecise findings, to entire knowledge gaps in scientific evidence.
