About Environmental psychology

Environmental psychology conducts research, teaching and collaboration with a focus on the interaction between man and the environment from the individual's perspective.

The discipline studies how humans experience their environment, are affected by it, and how humans impact the environment.

Our research involves the interaction with the physical and the social environment and studies the needs of different groups including children and elderly.

Environmental psychology takes a holistic perspective on the environment and the individual is studied in relation to interiors, urban spaces, landscapes and global environmental conditions.

Research results have practical implications for understanding the individual’s role in the achievement of the global sustainability goals.
