EcoMind is about the relationships between people and the environment, including various psychological approaches to this relationship: ecopsychology, environmental psychology, conservation psychology, and psychology of sustainability. The role of perception in how people view and respond to the natural world in general, and ecological crises in particular, is explored. Psychological perspectives on how nature affects people are discussed, both how the beauty and wildness of nature has positive effects and how impending or existing environmental disasters have negative effects.
