My expertise / skills : One of the challenges in the context of biodiversity, climate change and environmentalism more broadly is the gap in the discourses of science/scientists and the general public. The general public does not fully comprehend the findings provided by scientists and thus science-based initiatives fail to create meaningful change. Our research group has competence in analyzing the discourses and representations surrounding different biodiversity and climate mitigation policies to identify comprehension and communication gaps. In addition, we analyse representations as a means to study the status of nature and imaginaries evoked as an additional tool to identify the consequences of climate change on the public’s perceptions as well as address the public as actors of change.

Keywords: environmental humanities, discourse, representations, imaginaries
