Climate Psychology and Engagement in Further and Higher Education

CPA ScotlandGlasgow School of Art (GSA), Breckenridge Meeting rooms, Dalhousie Street


Join us to take the next steps in helping our communities - university and college and other communities - engage with climate change issues. The meeting is open to all who are interested in climate psychology. We will be progressing work from the last Community Engagement TSN meeting, where we discussed why people are apathetic towards climate change, and what professionals in the tertiary education sector can do about it in order to increase climate change engagement. From this work we will be developing application ideas across HEI and FEI campuses and curricula.

We are inviting attendees who wish to, to give a short 10 minute presentation on why they are interested in this work, how they see climate psychology as being part of this work or how it applies to their roles/institutions as part of the agenda.
