UAS Sep21: Environmental psychological perspectives on sustainability in an Arctic context
Friday 24 September, 2021at 12:00 - 13:00
Arcum-associated Louise Eriksson is an associate professor in psychology and a researcher in environmental psychology at the Department of Geography at Umeå University, and her research focuses at the individual level in Arctic research. In September 2021, Arcum will arrange an online seminar within the Umeå Arctic Seminar series and SEE Sustainability Week (Hållbarhetsveckan), where Louise will talk about environmental psychological perspectives on sustainability in an Arctic context.
Louise works as a researcher in environmental psychology and focuses on people's attitudes and behaviors with implications for the environment and the management of natural resources. The interaction between both physical and social characteristics in the context in which people live is crucial for understanding the attitudes and behaviors of different groups. An understanding of psychological processes can also create an awareness of how the individual is involved in shaping their social and physical environment.
In part of Louise's empirical work, Nordic conditions interact with human dimensions and her research thus focuses on the individual level in Arctic research. To illustrate, she will talk about the climate adaptation of forests, significant for a sustainable management of natural resources.
Friday, September 24 between noon and 1 PM, you have the opportunity to listen to Louise talk about environmental psychological perspectives on sustainability in an Arctic context.
