EFPA’s goals

Our plans include:

1. Priority field of action

Make climate change one of EFPA’s priority fields of action, and therefore a focus for the goals of EFPA’s working groups.

2. Policy influencing at the European level

Monitor, disseminate and seek to influence the work of the European Parliament / Commission in the field, drawing on expert policy advice, and using influencing materials prepared by our MAs / an expert reference group.  

3. Links across Europe

Foster connections between MAs that have climate change as a policy / advocacy priority, and facilitate regular discussions to share resources, actions and messaging.

4. Expert reference group

Form a reference network of European experts with research track records and deep knowledge in psychology and climate change to ensure psychological evidence is at the heart of what we all do.

5. Support hub

Develop an EFPA psychologists’ support hub to bring together resources from across Europe on psychology and climate change.

6. Publicity

Use the newsmagazine to highlight expert articles on psychology and climate change. Publicise the work of EFPA’s working groups re climate change. Publicise the policy / advocacy work of our MAs.

7. European Congresses

Encourage climate related submissions and a stream on psychology and climate change at both ECP2022 and ECP2023.

8. Connecting professional staff

Bring together professional staff working on psychology and climate change (e.g. research, policy, communications staff) into a coordinating network.

9. Working with others

Co-operate with our partner organisations (affiliate and associate members and MoU partners).
