Abstract
It is claimed that risk communication has the epistemic goal to inform and the pragmatic goal to change the recipients’ behaviour.

It is claimed that risk communication has the epistemic goal to inform and the pragmatic goal to change the recipients’ behaviour. The recipients should be considered as active agents with robust knowledge. Technical as well as psychological tools may be used to change the current knowledge state of the recipient and thereby her behaviour. These tools are mutually dependent and will change both the recipient’s mental landscape, that is, her conception of the world that surrounds her, and her local, external environment. The tools are presented within the framework of a theory of cognitive processes and knowledge as distributed between the agent and her environment and situated in concrete situations. It is suggested that risk information should be designed with respect to the recipients’ local environment, since the external environment gives access to the agents’ ‘inner world’. Thus the knowledge gaps between experts and recipients may be bridged. (Less)
