Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Achieving environmental, cultural, economic, and social sustainability is predicated on changing human behavior; the purview of Psychologists. For instance, research based in cognitive, social, and behavioral psychology has informed initiatives regarding public education and advocacy, framing of messages, decision making, incentive-based regulation, and social marketing. This special issue of Sustainability invites scholars to submit theoretical, empirical, and application oriented manuscripts addressing existing or potential contributions of Psychology to the Sustainability Sciences.
