  1. 1. Tradeoffs between self and environment in environmental judgment and decision making

    Författare :Hanna Andersson; Patrik Sörqvist; Ulla Ahonen-Jonnarth; Fredrik Bökman; Marita Wallhagen; Lars-Olof Johansson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; tradeoff; environmental concern; anchoring effect; normative message; travel time; avvägning; miljöoro; förankringseffekt; normativt budskap; restid; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Sammanfattning : One of the greatest challenges of today is to change our behavior to act more pro-environmentally to reduce global warming. We need to make sacrifices for the environment, e.g., use a means of transportation that take a longer time but causes less CO2 emission. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Psychological consequences of moral labelling in the built environment

    Författare :Andreas Haga; Patrik Sörqvist; Maria Johansson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Eco-label effect; performance; perception; judgment; moral labels; social judgement; lamp; label; miljöetiketteringseffekt; prestation; perception; bedömning; moraliska etiketter; sociala bedömningar; lampor; etikett; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Sammanfattning : Climate change is strongly linked to human behavior and technologies, and many of the barriers to sustainable behavior are rather psychological than technological. More sustainable technologies and food products have been introduced to combat climate change, most often labeled with morally loaded labels such as “organic” or “environmentally friendly”. LÄS MER

  3. 3. A Shield against Distraction from Environmental Noise

    Författare :Niklas Halin; Patrik Sörqvist; Jessica Ljungberg; John Marsh; Sara Bengtsson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; environmental noise; distractibility; task engagement; working memory capacity; office-related tasks; miljöljud; distraktion; engagemang i uppgiften; arbetsminneskapacitet; kontorsrelaterade arbetsuppgifter;

    Sammanfattning : Working in noisy environments can be detrimental to cognitive performance. In order to perform well people have to find a way to attenuate distraction. LÄS MER

  4. 4. A Negative Footprint Illusion in Environmental Impact Estimates

    Författare :Mattias Holmgren; Patrik Sörqvist; Ola Eriksson; Maria Ojala; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; The negative footprint illusion; averaging bias; environmental impact estimates; decision-making; climate change; Den negativa fotavtryckillusionen; genomsnittsprocess; miljöpåverkan; beslutsfattande; klimatförändringarna; inget Strategiskt forskningsområde SFO ; no Strategic Research Area SFO ;

    Sammanfattning : A major part of anthropogenic climate change is due to everyday human behavior, such as transportation, food and energy consumption. As a result, it has been argued that many barriers for mitigating climate change are psychological in nature. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Experimental study of an intermittent ventilation system in high occupancy spaces

    Författare :Alan Kabanshi; Patrik Sörqvist; Hans Wigö; Robert Ljung; Hazim Awbi; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Intermittent airflow; Indoor air quality; Perceived air quality; Thermal sensation; thermal comfort; Air movement acceptability; Convective cooling; Cooling effect.; Intermittent luftflöde; Luftstrålar; Upplevd luftkvalitet; Termisk komfort; Acceptans av luftrörelser; Konvektiv kylning; Kyleffekt.; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Sammanfattning : Spaces with high occupancy density like classrooms are challenging to ventilate and use a lot of energy to maintain comfort. Usually, a compromise is made between low energy use and good Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), of which poor IEQ has consequences for occupants’ health, productivity and comfort. LÄS MER
