IEA Appointment

January 2018

I’ve been selected to sit as a counselor the Executive Board of the US-based Interdisciplinary Environmental Association until 2020, which will allow me to promote research on the psychology of sustainability.

'The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association (IEA), founded in 1994, is an organization of academics and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives who believe that environmental problems require an interdisciplinary approach that needs to be clearly reflected in an organization dedicated to enhancing the discussion of these issues across disciplinary and political boundaries.

The mission of the IEA is thus to bring together all disciplines so that environmental knowledge is enhanced though interdisciplinary communications. The goals of the organization are to enhance understanding of environmental issues by educating each other in an interdisciplinary format, and to present disciplinary perspectives of environmental problems to people outside those disciplines, as well as to those outside academia, in a clear, understandable fashion.’ Their next international conference is in Montreal in June.
