Climate and Environment Psychology (CEPD)
The aims of the Division
In addition to the objectives of PsySSA and the functions of divisions as expressed in Articles 2 and 13 respectively of the PsySSA constitution, the mission of the Climate and Environment Psychology Division is to be the hub of Southern African psychological research, action, practice, and public engagement about the affective relationship between humans and the environment, particularly for global concerns such as climate change. We recognise the continued influence of coloniality, capitalism, sexism, racism and other isms and the need to address social inequality intersectionally and contextually. The goals derived from this mission are to be achieved in cooperation with other PsySSA structures, other professional organisations, the general public, and governmental organisations.
