- Master theses 
The climate crisis has reached a tipping point, with drastic mitigation action needed now more than ever. Mitigation can take place on multiple levels, namely governmental, industrial, and individual. As governments and corporations aren’t doing enough, responsibility can sometimes be unjustly shifted onto only the individual. Within this, there can be disparities between men and women with how they view and adopt climate friendly behaviors. This study aims to explore this possible gender gap surrounding personal climate mitigation efforts among individuals in Western Norway as well as explore how they view these efforts and where they believe the responsibility for mitigation lies.
