Conservation psychologists study the human dimension of environmental and sustainability issues. ConPsych focuses on researching the limitations people have towards behaving sustainably, and investigates ways to positively change people towards being more environmentally friendly. The blogs on the site were prepared by students in Dr. Michael D. Gumert’s ConPsych course (HP331/3203). In this website, you will find blogs covering topics across three categories:

  1. Conservation and sustainability issues pertaining to Asia
  2. Reviews of concepts and topics in Conservation Psychology
  3. Biographies of important people that have contributed to conserving and protecting our earth

Please enjoy the site. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact me at gumert@ntu.edu.sg.

Immersion in nature

On 22 March 2019, the class took a day-trip out to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. It was a day filled with excitement, learning, and humble reflection. To some, it was a pleasant surprise to find themselves amidst so much nature on this small hypermodern island. To others, it was a gentle reminder to put time aside to maintain and strengthen the connection one has with the natural world.

Excitement filled the air as the class spotted their first crocodile!
