Conservation psychology is the scientific study of the relationship between humans and nature, focusing on encouraging conservation of the natural world. It is the understanding of environmental problems using psychological principles. This branch of psychology is commonly applied in zoos or natural contexts and is exemplified by the application of social norms and persuasions or community-based approaches to environmental problems.
Duration: 1.5 hours

The atmosphere is composed of a mixture of moisture, temperature and gases which, in one way or another, control the conditions that are vital for the occurrence of life on earth. These conditions are always somewhat active, and are subject to change at every moment in time. The variations in the atmosphere along with the earth’s energy dynamics play a major role on what influences an everyday environmental behaviour. This, along with the movement of the earth and the suns radiation, produces continuous and aggregate conditions of climate and weather phenomena that affect, positively or negatively, life on earth.
