Synergy Expert Meeting 2024 Application

Deadline to Apply: May 5, 2024

The European Health Psychology Society (EHPS) Synergy Board is inviting applications to its Expert Meeting 2024: Research Synergies for the Future: Advancing Environmental Health Psychology

Meeting Description: 

Promoting environmental health, influenced by the natural and built environment, involves addressing environmental degradation through mitigation and adaptation. Individuals can help through behavior change, adopting sustainable technologies, or supporting sustainable policies. Environmental and health psychologists work to understand human-environment interactions and encourage contributions to mitigation and adaptation, but limited exchange between the sub-disciplines hampers mutual learning and progress in environmental health promotion.

The main aim of the Expert Meeting is to bring environmental and health psychologists interested in environmental health together to facilitate exchange and mutual learning. The specific objectives are to:

  • Discuss the theoretical and methodological state-of-the-art in environmental and health psychology relevant to environmental health promotion
  • Identify synergies and opportunities for mutual learning between the two sub-disciplines
  • Discuss the state-of-the-art in environmental health promotion practice as well as practitioners’ research needs
  • Generate a manuscript outlining a research agenda for environmental health psychology
  • Establish a network between environmental and health psychologists interested in environmental health
