open laptop sitting on a desk

We are pleased to announce Division 34’s inaugural online conference, to be held virtually June 16–17, 2022. Join us as we explore the latest insights from environmental, population, and conservation psychology on “Promoting a healthy and sustainable future.”

To our delight, the conference has turned into a global event, with speakers from four continents, on topics such as:

  • Understanding perceptions of and responses to climate change
  • Shifting individual and collective behavior
  • Addressing climate anxiety
  • Building community resilience
  • Promoting well-being through improved human-environment interactions
  • Addressing environmental inequities

We hope you'll join us to be part of the conversation. The conference will be hosted on Airmeet, and sessions will be recorded in case you have a time conflict.


Registration closes June 2, 2022.
