Abstract

The article examines the psychological aspects that affect evaluation and prevention of global risks. The structure and antecedents of individual and group attitudes toward global risks are proposed. The analysis of psychological studies shows that a positive image of the future and clarification of opportunities are more effective in global long-term risk prevention then alarmist approaches. The role of global social identity and online communities in global risks prevention is discussed. The directions for further psychological research on the subject are proposed.
