The organizing committee of the 23rd IAPS International Conference “Transitions to sustainable societies: Designing research and policy for changing lifestyles and communities”, which will take place in Timisoara, Romania, 23 – 27 June 2014, is organizing the symposium “History and evolutions, trends and future perspectives in Environmental Psychology”.

In organizing this symposium, we aim to bring together leading experts from Environmental Psychology from different parts of the word to analyze and discuss with the research community, the history, evolutions and future perspectives of our discipline.

We believe that some important issues should be addressed

  • the History of Environmental Psychology in different parts of the world (Europe, USA, Canada, Latin-America countries, India, Japan, etc.)
  • the evolution on main domains in EP, like as: Psychology of Urban Environments, Housing and Quality of Life, Public perception in Environmental Policy, Environmental Risk and Vulnerability
  • the evolution of Sustainability related with psychological concepts and constructions .
  • current trends and future directions of EP

We will invite professor Christopher Spencer, professor David Uzzell, professor Roderick Lawrence, professor Eric Pol, professor Robert Gifford, but also other colleagues who shown during the time interest to this approach.
