BfN Schriften 460 - Outlooks on Applying Environmental Psychology Research
Representatives of nature conservation authorities and associations, environmental politicians, voluntary conservationists, natural scientists, psychologists, political scientists and general scientists were invited to discuss and make use of the findings of modern environmental psychology for nature conservation and nature protection communication.
Federal Agency for Nature Conservation
All three workshops used very different ways broaching the issue of psychology in nature conservation: The first workshop addressed the topic of Nature Conservation Communication (2014), the second dealt with Nature Experience and Mindfulness (2015), and the very recent third workshop was held in the form of an international summer school on environmental psychology (2016). For four days PhD students and other young researchers in the field of Environmental Psychology met with three international experts to discuss and work on current findings from environmental psychology and their own scientific work on the Baltic island of Vilm. Ten young researchers also presented their current projects as speakers (for the program see Appendix A).
