XR Psychologists support
‘Ride the Change; Cycle to COP26’

I am riding this route as a psychologist (as a community psychologist to be precise) to support psychology’s contribution to addressing the climate crisis. I am cycling with about 60 other activists and so am looking forward to learning from them as we go along the way.

As well as being supported by XR Psychologists, this action is linked to the British Psychological Society’s Joining the Dots conference.

He’s off!

24/10/21 Carl sets off from London, waved off with a letter to COP leaders jointly written by Climate Psychology Alliance, Psychologists / Psychotherapists for Future Germany and XR Psychologists. Signed by 1000s of therapists worldwide.

Carl speaks to…

During the ride, Carl will be sharing examples of community psychologists’ action in response to climate change from around the world, as well as closer to home.

He will share some videos of interviews with some amazing psychologists who are doing great work in places like South Africa, Brazil and Puerto Rico, as well as some videos of the ride experience itself.
