Abstract:Although various environmental problems are increasingly prominent and have received widespread attention, research has witnessed a decreasing trend of participation into environmental protection. In particular, when self-protection (for now) and environmental protection (for the future) come into conflict, people often prefer the former. The enormous environmental costs associated with the relative imbalance between environmental protection and self-protection make it particularly important to identify factors that exert a unique influence in promoting environmental protection. Drawing upon prior literature on intergenerational decision-making, we investigated the influence of connection to future others (i.e., intergenerational connectedness) and connection to future self (i.e., future self-continuity) on pro-environmental behaviors and self-protective behaviors respectively. Using an experience sampling design recording 242 employees’ responses to haze across two work weeks, Study 1 explored the relationship between future orientation and the two behaviors. Study 1 found that perception of haze was positively correlated with both pro-environmental behaviors and self-protective behaviors with future orientation as the mediator. Study 2 surveyed 312 employees to further investigate the influence of connection to future others and connection to future self on pro-environmental and self-protective behaviors respectively. Results revealed that perception of haze contributed to both more pro-environmental and self-protective behaviors. Further, connection to future others mediated the relationship between perception of haze and pro-environmental behaviors, whereas connection to future self mediated the relationship between perception of haze and self-protective behaviors. Our results help to address the knowledge-behavior gap in risk management and yield profound practical implications for policy makers by highlighting the exclusive role of intergenerational connectedness and future self-continuity.
