Environmental Psychology Research and Study Group members presented project results at a seminar at Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg

Head of Environmental Psychology Research and Study Group, Professor Elena Sautkina and Research and Study Group member, PhD student of School of Psychology Alexandra Ivanova made a presentation “Development and Validation of the Russian Scale of Pro-Environmental Behaviour” at the seminar organized by the Personality and Social Psychology Division of the Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg, Germany.

Researchers Explain What Makes People Pro-Environmental

The HSE School of Psychology has studied the psychological, social, and political factors behind Russians’ pro-environmental behaviour. It appears that women hold more pro-environmental attitudes than men, trust in the free market negatively affects sustainable consumption, and awareness of the benefits of pro-environmental actions better motivates people to sort waste than environmental concern or connectedness to nature. The study has been published by SSRN.
