Keene, New Hampshire (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
Antioch University New England (AUNE) will hold the Conservation Psychology Institute at its campus in Keene, New Hampshire, June 23 through 27. A distinguished national faculty and institute participants will explore the use of psychology in conservation and sustainability practices during this intensive and path-breaking program.
“We had a phenomenal response to the 2011 pilot CPI,” said Carol Saunders, research faculty in AUNE’s Department of Environmental Studies and one of the founders of conservation psychology. “The mix of sustainability professionals, academic researchers and conservation practitioners and educators offered a rich learning environment. This year’s CPI promises to build on that solid foundation.”
“Institute participants develop applied projects that take the concept of conservation psychology and apply it to real-world conservation and sustainability challenges,” said Abigail Abrash Walton, CPI faculty member and director of AUNE’s Center for Academic Innovation. “Our 2011 participants developed projects to promote advocacy on climate change at zoos and aquaria, to prevent destruction of coastal zones in Belize, and to support natural science museum visitors in addressing their emotional responses to environmental challenges.”
