We welcome you to the seventh annual Sustainability Psychology Preconference! Environmental sustainability is a major challenge facing our world, and social-personality psychologists are increasingly helping us to achieve sustainability goals. This year’s theme is “working together to address environmental challenges”. We will look across traditional boundaries to encourage a deeper understanding of the causes and effects of environmental degradation, as well as to promote practical solutions for a healthier world. Our preconference includes a keynote address, three sessions focusing on basic, applied, and policy issues, two blitz sessions, and posters. It also includes student presenter awards, as well as time for group discussion and networking. We invite researchers and practitioners, whether newcomers or established, dabblers or conservationists, to share their knowledge and help us learn how to work together to address environmental challenges. We thank APA Division 34 for their support and look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
