Psychology and Sustainability

The "Psychology and Sustainability" working group conducts research based on central psychological theories and methods and develops these further in a practice-oriented manner, especially in the area of climate and sustainability. This includes how sustainability thinking and action develops over the lifespan, also in institutional and informal learning processes, how risks are understood and communicated by different individuals, how sustainable health promotion can be implemented, and what characteristics distinguish multidimensional negotiations for scarce resources.
