Conservation Psychology Institute Scheduled June 12-15 at AUNE

The Conservation Psychology Institute (CPI), scheduled for June 12-15, 2016, at AUNE, is currently accepting registrations (discount available until April 1).  The 3-day annual event is an interactive workshop with some of the leading researchers in the field. Its focus this year is on promoting human and environmental health across multiple scales—individual, organizational, community, and ecosystem—through the application of psychological research on behavior change, connection with nature, and effective communication.

CPI 2015

Dr. Louise Chawla works with past CPI participants.

The Institute faculty are experienced in education and training, and have practical experience in working with organizations, communities, and individuals.  Throughout the workshop, they’ll draw on a range of didactic and interactive strategies designed to foster collaborative learning, team problem-solving, and the development of clear ‘takeaways.’ Attendees can expect a participatory and dynamic mix of pre-reading, presentation, small group discussion and application, Q&A, one-on-one coaching, and team planning time. Sessions will be held both indoors and outdoors at the AUNE campus.

Participants who register as teams, wanting to work on a specific organizational challenge, find the Institute particularly effective. Additionally, the event is well-suited for communication and education practitioners in community and non-profit organizations; students and educators interested in a working knowledge of the field of conservation psychology; or individuals from a range of organizational settings interested in learning about conservation psychology principles.
