Psychology For A Better World: Strategies to Inspire Sustainability

The book is based on the latest research in psychology and is jam-packed with action strategies.It offers new ways to think about how people interact in social settings, why we are tempted to stick with what we know, and how the same characteristics that currently keep us hooked into unsustainable practices can be used to move us forward.
The final chapter is a guide to help you analyse what you are doing to contribute towards a better world, and how you can be more effective while simultaneously increasing your personal wellbeing.
