Social Influences on Environmental Engagement - A Conservation Psychology Webinar 

Environmental issues are increasingly entrenched in social meanings. Indeed, differences in people’s understanding of and responses to pressing environmental issues have become less about science and more about what these issues mean for society and disparate social groups.

In this webinar, we will discuss how sociallyrelevant factors, such as social norms, differentially shape individual’s positive engagement (or lack thereof) with the environment.


Meaghan Guckian, PhD is Core Faculty in the   Department of Environmental Studies at Antioch University New England.

Working at the intersection of conservation psychology, communications, judgment and decision-making, and environmental conservation, Meaghan’s research examines the behavioral underpinnings of the multifaceted social-ecological dilemmas facing society.

She received her PhD in Environmental Conservation from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, studying how intentional social interactions can act as both barriers and conduits to environmental progress.
