Psychologists working in climate and environmental science study the dynamics of human-environment interactions ranging from natural environments to built environments, social settings, cultural groups and informational environments.
Psychology’s Impact

Environmental psychologists apply scientific research to improve interactions between people and the physical world around us. This work can include looking at human responses to natural and technological hazards, trying to understand why people do or do not conserve resources and even why and how diseases spread.

As the evidence for global warming grows, environmental and conservation scientists are at the forefront of studying the role of humans in this phenomenon, working to find solutions that will help motivate people to alter behavior to restore our environment.
