The DOP Going Green Working Group invites you to this event showcasing MSc dissertations relating to environmental sustainability and some aspect of psychology at work, for example pro-environmental behaviour in the workplace; leadership; well-being etc.
The event is intended to bring together employers and students to demonstrate the research that students could do that would be suitable for a potential Masters level research project, as well as to provide a networking opportunity for students, academics, researchers and other professionals to enable them to further develop options for research by students that would be directly beneficial to an organisation or employer, and from which others can learn.
Students and graduates
If you are a student who has completed a suitable dissertation, or you are currently working on something that is relevant to the area of environmental sustainability and psychology at work, please consider submitting something for this event. We would like students briefly to present their research in person (oral presentation), or to offer a poster.
If you are involved in the delivery of Masters programmes please consider your recent students and their research that might be suitable to include in this event. University staff may already have successful relationships with local organisations to enable students to produce MSc dissertations relating to psychology and sustainability and we invite you to share how you have developed these. Universities are also invited to submit their criteria for research projects and ways in which you have worked with organisations to generate student projects, to inform discussion on the day.
