Judith de Groot

Judith de Groot worked as a post doc researcher at the University of Groningen, where she also received her PhD in Social and Environmental Psychology. Currently, she works as a Senior Lecturer in Environmental Psychology at Bournemouth University (UK). Her research interests involve explaining different types of pro-environmental behaviours from a moral perspective. She examines which and how human values affect norms and behaviours in the environmental domain. She further conducts research on the acceptability and effectiveness of environmental policies in the area of transportation, nuclear energy and other (sustainable) energy resources, and household energy consumption. Another research direction focuses on evaluating the effects of environmental policies on well-being and quality of life.

Yannick Joye

Yannick Joye has studied philosophy at the University of Ghent, Belgium. In 2007 he obtained a doctoral degree in philosophy at this same university for research on nature-based forms in architecture. In his doctorate he inquired to what extent architectural guidelines could be derived from environmental psychology research and the field of evolutionary environmental aesthetics. Dr. Joye currently works as a full-time postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leuven, in the Institute of Philosophy. For his current research he critically inquires the evolutionary assumptions underlying environmental psychology research and he is also involved in research that attempts to construct an integrative model for restorative responses to nature. Dr. Joye has published in (among others) Environment and Planning B, Review of General Psychology and Urban Forestry and Urban Greening.

Annika Nordlund

Annika Nordlund is an assistant professor at the Department of Psychology, Umeå University in Sweden and supervisor and director of research for the Transportation Research Unit at Umeå University. Her main research interests are the effects of psychological factors on environmentally significant behavior. Foci are on the impact of values, attitudes, problem awareness, and norms on the willingness to engage in general and specific types of proenvironmental behaviors (e.g. travel mode choice), the expressed support of implementing structural solutions, and on alternative motives behind proenvironmental behavior. In addition she have an interest is to study the travel mode choice as a routinized choice and how travel mode habits can be changed by increased awareness.

Sebastian Bamberg

Sebastian Bamberg is professor of Social Psychology and Methods at University of Applied Science Bielefeld, Germany. His research involves the development and evaluation of theory-driven intervention programs aiming to change environmentally harmful behaviours, especially car use. At a theoretical level, he is interested in modelling the environmental, social, and psychological determinants of behavioural change. Recent projects have included laboratory experiments on the interplay of values, responsibility attribution, and emotions and the desire to change environmentally harmful behaviours, the correlational test of stage based models of behavioural change, and three large field studies evaluating the behavioural impact of theory based social marketing campaigns.
