What Are Risk Currencies?

6 mins 1 sec

Overview

Risk currencies are risks we understand automatically and intuitively, built over years in your career. A climate scientist's risk currencies will involve the dangers of climate change, but a finance professional's risk currencies would involve financial collapse. Risk currencies make us better at our jobs - risks become intuitive and we develop a gut feeling for threats. However, these are impossible to grasp for others without the same bank of knowledge.

Key learning objectives:

  • Define risk currencies

  • Outline the benefits and problems with risk currencies

  • Understand why risk currencies affect climate risk perceptions

Summary
What are risk currencies?
Risk currencies are risks we understand automatically and intuitively, built over years in your career. A climate scientist's risk currencies will involve the risks and dangers of climate change. A finance professional's risk currencies would involve financial collapse.

What are the benefits and problems with risk currencies?
Risk currencies make us better at our jobs - risks become intuitive and we develop a gut feeling for threats. However, these are impossible to grasp for others without the same bank of knowledge.

Why do risk currencies affect climate risk perceptions?
Climate scientists and financial professionals have completely different risk currencies and therefore, cannot see the risks of climate change in the same way. Communicating risk across sectoral and expert boundaries is as challenging as appearing at a market with a currency in your wallet that a trader won't accept.

Kris De Meyer

Kris De Meyer, a neuroscientist at University College London, believes climate change is a 'people problem' influenced by how people perceive risk, communicate, and think about societal change. The Climate Action Unit aims to bridge communication and understanding gaps between different experts, such as climate scientists and decision-makers in policy, business, and finance, to address climate change and its impact on society.
