Thomas Doherty weekend Conservation Psychology course at Lewis & Clark Graduate School


After psychologist Thomas Doherty consulted about the Portland Airport’s new food waste diversion program in 2012, the “Sort It and Win” program became more popular with employees and results improved 59%.*

Why did this happen?  Thomas applied some basic psychology principles to the program.

If you are interested in learning more about the links between psychology, conservation, and sustainability, consider attending the Conservation Psychology course at Lewis & Clark Graduate School, October 25-26, 2014.

This weekend course includes lecture, practice exercises and group discussion. Students will also do a brief fieldwork session with the Lewis & Clark campus habitat restoration initiative. Guest speakers include Amy Dvorak, Lewis & Clark Sustainability Coordinator.

More information and registration available at the the Conservation Psychology course event website.
