Environmental sustainability is a theoretically rich and practically important problem for social and personality psychologists. We invite you to join in the conversation at the Seventh Annual Sustainability Psychology Preconference! This year’s meeting emphasizes working together to address environmental challenges. Our program includes a keynote on theoretical and practical aspects of conducting intervention work, as well as invited speaker sessions on theoretical and methodological frontiers, pro-environmental interventions, and public engagement. We will also include blitz talks, poster sessions, and opportunities to network over lunch and at happy hour. We expect another exciting program and look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
