The PSYCLIC project, funded by the ERASMUS+ program, is a revolutionary initiative aimed at opening up new career paths for students of psychology as well as students from other disciplines. Incorporating the viewpoints of social psychology, environmental psychology, and industrial- & organizational psychology, the project has a clear focus on the intersection of climate change and psychology.

One of the main outcomes of the PSYCLIC project is the development of an e-learning course that brings together the topics of climate change and psychology. Designed for implementation in higher education institutions, the course is a comprehensive resource for students and educators alike.

We are proud to announce a multiplier event that will take place on the 11th of February at Saarland University on the campus. During this event, the e-learning course will be presented and participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussions and gain a deeper understanding of the project’s goals and objectives.

This event is a unique opportunity for students, educators, and professionals to come together and explore the impact of psychology on climate change. Whether you are a psychology student looking to broaden your career prospects or a professional interested in the intersection of climate change and psychology, this event is for you.

We invite you to join us on the 11th of February at Saarland University and be a part of this exciting project. The plan for the day is as follows:

Agenda for the Multiplier Event:

10:30 – 11:00Welcoming of participants IntroductionAims oft he eventPresentation of speakers  
11:00 – 12:00Presentation of climate change and natural changes

Human contribution
Mitigation tactics  

The presentation will emphasize the primary drivers of climate change. These natural forces interact in complex ways, leading to changes in the Earth’s temperature, precipitation patterns, and sea levels. The presentation will also examine the consequences of these changes, including rising sea levels, melting glaciers, and increased frequency of extreme weather events. By highlighting the key natural causes and consequences of climate change, the presentation aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of this critical issue and the importance of monitoring and protecting our planet’s delicate balance.
12:00 – 12:15Break
12:15 – 12:45Interactive Quiz on Climate Change and Psychology

How do humans contribute to climate change?
How can we explain environmentally harmful behavior from a psychological perspective?
How can research in psychology help us design interventions that encourage people to behave in more environmentally friendly ways?
What is the role of climate activism in addressing climate change?
How can we support climate activism?Introducing the e-learning course on psychology and climate change  

The interactive format is composed of a quiz, in which the audience is encouraged to think about how they would expect humans to behave in certain contexts that are affected by climate change and environmental behavior (e.g. a decision-making scenario in which one can decide for using the bike or the car, depending on external circumstances)
