Massive change: How social media can enable a sustainable world

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Collective action problems, such as emission reductions to reduce risks of climate change or vaccination for infectious diseases, are prevalent in our society. We need new approaches to understand, stimulate and sustain collective action in large heterogeneous populations. To engender cooperative behavior at large scales, we need to develop computational tools to facilitate the context for cooperation. This talk will sketch out the some of the computational challenges that we need to address in order to scale up cooperation on collective action problems.
