The bright side of an environmentally friendly life

Thursday 2 February 2017, 18.00-21.00
Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied (IDEA) Centre, 17 Blenheim Terrace, LS2 9JT
Dr Leonie Venhoeven (University of Groningen)
Professional Ethics Network event


Dr Leonie Venhoeven will be presenting her research on environmental psychology. Dr Venhoeven recently finished her PhD in environmental psychology at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. The topic of her dissertation was the question whether and why environmentally-friendly behaviour may contribute to well-being. In recent years, the stress on individuals to actively reduce their environmental impact has increased. In her presentation, Dr Leonie Venhoeven will dispute the assumption that living an environmentally-friendly life equates to sacrificing personal well-being. By contrast she will propose ways in which environmentally-friendly behaviour can contribute to well-being.

There will be group discussion of the issues raised in the talk and the evening will conclude with wine and a buffet evening meal.
