The project develops the new field of climate gerontology and aims to describe older Czechs´ (65+) values, attitudes and behaviour relevant within the climate change and environmental crisis context. It also seeks to gain deeper understanding of motivations, attitudes and practices of “green” older people (those declaring explicitly pro-environmental values and being actively engaged in various forms of eco-activism and civic participation), and to explore and interpret perceived impacts of climate change to older people in urban and rural settings in significantly climatically changing areas including their coping strategies (if present) in relation to their residential biographies, place attachment and place outlook.
