Participating in the Ecopsychepedia
The Ecopsychepedia is a free, reliable, easy-to-use source to learn about how psychological factors drive the climate crisis, and how it is, in turn, affecting us – our mental health, our emotions, our psychology, our relationships, our behaviour. Over the coming years, this resource will develop to cover the entire field of climate psychology. Developed by experts in the fields of mental health and human behaviour, the Ecopsychepedia is working to create a knowledge sharing hub, accessible to everyone, including researchers, health practitioners, students, parents, educators, policymakers, journalists, community leaders, and general readers. Understanding the psychological impacts of our changing climate is a starting point to building resilience and equipping people as agents of change. The Ecopsychepedia is a dynamic reference source that will be regularly updated with new articles and revisions to existing articles to maintain up-to-date information. This living, growing reference source will be responsive to the changes we hear, see and feel in our changing world.
