International Congress of Psychology 2019
March 7-9, 2019 in Paris, France
Given that Social Psychology has always been studying humans in contexts of pressing societal problems, we believe that our field can make a substantial contribution to current societal problems. The symposium, will therefore feature four talks by distinguished speakers that provide deeper understanding of human behavior and its change in the context of pressing current societal problems. Moreover, it will be discussed who our discipline can contribute to the solution of these problems.
The symposium, held on Friday, March 8th at 2 pm at the International Congress of Psychology (ICPS2019), will feature contributions applying social psychology to environmental, media, and health related problems:
- Social Psychology contributions to global environmental challenges: From energy efficiency to marine environments
