We invite social psychologists to come learn how their work relates to environmental influence, conservation, and sustainability, and we invite practitioners to inform and learn from behavioral scientists. This year we are planning special sessions on recent developments in basic sustainability psychology research, the behavioral, social, and health effects of environmental decisions, and policy approaches to addressing environmental problems. We will also offer a keynote address, blitz talks, and a poster session. There will also be opportunities for networking between researchers, practitioners in the field, and policymakers. We expect an exciting and dynamic program. We hope you’ll join us for the 6th Annual Sustainability Psychology Preconference!
