Hot or Cool Institute is comprised of scientists, policy analysts, and communicators dedicated to improving the well-being of our planet and all its inhabitants.
As a public interest think tank that explores the intersection between society and sustainability, we bring together researchers and practitioners to facilitate solutions to global problems. This collaboration equips communities, organisations and policy makers with science to inform their decisions towards a sustainable and prosperous future. We are driven by the three key principles of a sustainable civilization:
- wellbeing and prosperity
- fairness and justice
- living within ecological limits
While behaviour change is important at all levels, it is vital to change the norms, laws, provisioning systems, and infrastructure that dictate the actions of individuals. Sustainable change is both individual and systemic change.
