|Title:||Evaluation and Response to Environmental Change|
|Keywords:||environmental, change, evaluations|
|Abstract:||<p> This paper proposes an approach for research into environmental change. It is argued that research should take into account the subjective level of a person's experience in order to gain an understanding of the human consequences of change. Two methods of investigating subjective interpretations and evaluations of environmental change are discussed: phenomenological description and personal construct theory. However, it is contended that analysis of behavioural responses to change requires consideration of group processes and conditions operating independently of any one individual. In this regard, the problems and constraints associated with collective actions to protest environmental decisions are examined. The proposed approach thus attempts to link the micro-situation of the individual with the aggregate processes of environmental change.</p>|
