Conservation Psychology Institute at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens 13-16 October 2012

29 August 2012

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and Antioch University New England have joined together to run an intensive 4-day Conservation Psychology  Institute (CPI) designed for professionals in botanic garden, museum,
zoo, media, and other sectors with broad public engagement opportunities to learn from an  internationally recognized team of faculty about relevant psychological  theories and strategies for changing behavior for environmental and  human well-being.

The participants will gain knowledge and skills in the fields of  conservation psychology, environmental psychology and ecopsychology  to effectively bring about environmental behavior change via work in  their own institutions and sectors.

The CPI will take place at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, October 12-16, 2012.
