The aim of the summer school is to provide PhD students in environmental psychology the opportunity to receive instructions and supervision from senior environmental psychologists, and to meet and discuss their work with fellow-participants. Participants will get a chance to establish network of contacts throughout the world.
The summer school will focus on writing research proposals that address real-life problems. The event sponsors will first present some sustainability related problems they currently face or may face in the future. Next, participants will draft research proposals to address these problems, in which the theoretical basis, the methodology, the research design, the innovative value, and the theoretical and practical implications of the research are spelled out. These research proposals will be presented to and discussed with fellow-participants and practitioners in a final plenary session. This will provide participants the chance to learn about theory, methodology, and research designs in environmental psychology within the context of a real world problem. It also offers an opportunity for attendees to practice and improve their communication and presentational skills.
The summer school will last one week and during this time attendees will work on drafting their research proposals in groups of about 12. The workshops will be supervised by senior environmental psychologists from several different countries whose own research specialization falls within the theme of the particular workshop. This implies that teaching will be highly interactive. Participants will be encouraged to design and develop collaborative research projects that continue afterwards.
The summer school will provide a unique chance to work with junior and senior environmental psychologists from around the world. Participants will receive a certificate for attending the summer school.
