Welcome to the 12th annual Sustainability Psychology Preconference! This year’s theme is “Diversifying Sustainability Psychology: Towards the inclusion of diverse populations, actors, and methodologies.” Our field could have wide-reaching relevance given the urgency and ubiquity of the impacts of climate change and other environmental issues. Nevertheless, the existing research has been developed with predominantly samples and researchers in Western, developed societies as well as with a strong focus on individual-level processes. This year’s preconference showcases cutting-edge research that extends the predominant scope in sustainability psychology. We will place the spotlight on work that includes diverse populations (both participants- and researchers-wise) and that examines multiple levels of actors (e.g., nations and corporations), and that employs innovative methodologies (e.g., computational methods). Our preconference is open to participants from all levels and professional backgrounds and will include a keynote address, invited speaker sessions, blitzes, poster sessions, and a networking event.
