The Going Green Sustainability Conference

October 6th, 2011 by Sarah Green Leave a reply »

The Going Green Working Group is proud to announce their forthcoming conference on Green Sustainability Initiatives in the workplace.

The conference is to focus on how psychology can apply research and best practices to changing attitudes and behaviours in the workplace to support sustainability.

The conference, funded by the Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP), part of the British Psychological Society (BPS) is holding the one day event to help demonstrate through a series of one-off presentations on how to engage employees to adopt sustainable green practices at work.

The event is open to members of the public and professionals from all fields. Professionals will learn about the latest psychological research and best corporate practices in being sustainable.

Keynote presentations and facilitated workshops will be led by expert researchers, practitioners, consultants, business sustainability leaders and London’s Green Party MEP.
