The Next STEP - Summer School on Theories in Environmental Psychology’ will bring together 45 PhD students in the field of environmental psychology and related sciences to help bridge the gap between environmental psychology theory and practical applications.

Through a series of workshops, group exercises and guest lectures by prominent experts in the field, our summer school empowers participants with knowledge and tools needed to effectively address pressing environmental issues.

Participants will get to apply psychological theory to practical problems, gain expert insights, network with fellow PhD students and professionals who share their passion for environmental psychology.

The 45 PhD students will be distributed into 5 groups; with 2 senior supervisors and a sponsoring organisation per group. The supervisors will be internal as well as external researchers, thus from other universities and/or faculties.

Sponsoring organisations will provide the PhD students with a real life problem that their organisation has faced or will be facing. The PhD students will work, under the supervision of senior researchers, on the problem throughout the week to come up with an intervention plan and provide theory-based practical solutions for the organisation.
