In a partnership between the Universidade do Algarve and PSICAMB - Association of Environmental Psychology, a Conference on Environmental Psychology will take place in Faro, between 11 and 14 April 2022. It will be the XVI PSICAMB Conference, the third held in Portugal.
At a time when environmental issues and the urgency of sustainability dominate public debates, PSICAMB's biennial conferences bring together many of those who investigate Environmental Psychology, in the Iberian Peninsula, Brazil and other Latin American countries, as well as France and other European countries (and even from other continents), to discuss the current issues on the multiple interactions between people and the environment.
The XVI Conference of Environmental Psychology (PSICAMB 2022) will have four days of work. The first day will be dedicated to workshops and the opening plenary conference (provided by a keynote speaker) and the second and third days will be mainly dedicated to communication sessions, posters, and symposia. The fourth and last day will conclude the sessions and symposia, and the work will end with a final plenary conference. The Conference will also be the occasion for the biennial meeting of PSICAMB (members' assembly) and the attribution of the already traditional Rocío Martín Award (for works by young researchers in Environmental Psychology).
A social and cultural program (welcome drink, congress dinner, folk concert/ranch, tours in the region) will be offered to participants and their companions.
