Why are we here?

XR Psychologists Declaration

Psychology is a broad and varied discipline, studying all aspects of human behaviour. Psychologists spend their working lives trying to understand the way humans think, feel and behave with the aim of improving outcomes in individual and collective wellbeing, health and effectiveness.

The climate and ecological emergency that faces us all is both caused by human behaviour, and will have massive implications for the well-being, health and effectiveness of all humans and all other life on the planet.

Many psychologists see the impact that this crisis will have on their areas of work, their families, communities, and the wider world. There is no simple psychological fix. But as national and international governments fail to push forward with meaningful, timely, concrete actions – psychologists are taking a stand and joining this movement for change.

Activities

What we do

In the spirit of XR we aim to do what is necessary to awaken government, media, communities and ourselves to the scale of the Climate and Ecological Emergency and it’s impact on emotional health and well-being and trauma.

Actions
