Environmental decision making

From vehicle purchases to energy use to recycling, environmental decisions involve uncertainty, temporal components, and cooperative interactions. Thus, environmental decision making is ripe for applying concepts from the bounded rationality approach to risky choice, intertemporal choice, and cooperation to help people make better long-term decisions. To pursue these questions, we are developing the Center for Environmental Cognition and Education (CECE) to bring together researchers across UNL who investigate questions at the interface of environmental studies, psychology, and education.
