The Psychology of Sustainability: Germany (UMAIE) Germany has emerged as a world leader in sustainability. Students will be embedded in a culture where sustainability is the norm rather than the exception (which is its current status in the U.S.). In addition, the field of Conservation Psychology (Umweltpsychologie), which is now emerging strongly as an important field of study within psychology in the United States, is well-established and has a strong history in Germany. We will interact with German faculty and students working on Conservation Psychology research and, in one case, work with them on their projects. Locating the course in Cologne, Hamburg, and Berlin with side-trips to Denmark and Belgium will provide ample opportunity to compare European conservation to that of the U.S. and to introduce students to important concepts in Conservation Psychology by directly observing how they have been applied in Germany.
