Psychologists for Social Responsibility and Friends of the Earth have released a new report of a joint workshop co-sponsored in September 2010. It explores the role that psychology -- especially the psychology of human identity -- can play in environmental and social campaigns and communications for transformative change.
We thank the David and Carol Myers Foundation for their generous support for this work.
