The Psychology of Climate Change:

A Conversation with Dr. Dylan Selterman

Action on climate change is essentially a social process. This conversation follows on our climate and psychology event last August to cover key themes on why we do or do not act on climate change. The discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Dylan Selterman to elicit best practices and mistakes to avoid when we broach the topic of global warming. Join this intimate conversation on the psychology of climate change!

Speaker Bio: In the Department of Psychology at the University of Maryland, Dr. Selterman teaches about social and interpersonal behaviors, including those relevant to our broad understanding of climate change. Dr. Selterman’s article in National Geographic “What a Simple Psychological Test Reveals About Climate Change” evaluated who acts on climate and what motivates action. Beyond his work at UMD, Dr. Selterman lends his insights to Citizens’ Climate Lobby advocates, helping volunteers improve their approach to talking with people from different political persuasions.
