We are excited to announce that on Monday the 31st of July and Tuesday the 1st of August, we are planning to run a series of half day and full day pre-conference workshops. 

One of our confirmed workshops, titled: ‘Social Psychology of Climate Conflicts: How to Mediate and Resolve Climate Conflicts in Different Cultural Contexts?’, will be  facilitated by Gulnaz Anjum and Nora Cornelia Glerud Benningstad.

This workshop will explore how climate change and climate shocks affect us at individual, social, and cultural levels, posing serious threats to communities and societal peacekeeping. We will discuss various models and case studies of collaboration and conflict management, and apply them to global climate change and sustainability conflicts. Presenters will bring local, regional, and international cases from the global North (Canada, Norway) and South (Pakistan, Sahel).

Join us for an engaging discussion on how we can manage eco-anxiety, collaborate, and care for individuals’ well-being while working towards sustainable solutions. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn and network with like-minded individuals!

Another confirmed workshop will be ‘Social Interventions with Communities: from Design to Sustainability’ facilitated by Dr. Ronni Greenwood from the University of Limerick. Her research focuses on the ecological aspects of psychological well-being and distress among marginalised social groups. She takes an intersectional approach to understanding the role of social identity complexity in well-being, and uses both quantitative and qualitative research methods. In her research, she examines factors that give rise to understanding, commitment, and affinity between social groups, as well as processes that underlie social categorisation, political consciousness, collective responsibility, and solidarity.

Currently, the following workshops are confirmed:
