Psychologists to Present Information on Sustainable Development
Psychology will be highlighted at a special event at the United Nations being held on April 24.
The Seventh Annual Psychology Day at the United Nations, co-sponsored by The Permanent Mission of El Salvador to the United Nations, will focus on Psychology’s Contributions to Sustainable Development: Challenges and Solutions for the Global Agenda. This event focuses on the three pillars of sustainable development, with presentations from psychologists and UN representatives addressing how the science and practice of psychology can be used to advance social, environmental, and economic well-being, thus contributing to the United Nations Post-2015 Agenda.
SIOP Fellow Lori Foster Thompson will co-chair this event with Rashmi Jaipal, The event promises to bring important psychological research to an international audience of UN personnel, ambassadors, students, teachers, and government personnel.
The Inaugural Psychology Day at the United Nations was held in 2007, with subsequent Psychology Days were observed in 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.
