Plymouth Green Book welcomes Paul Cox, former Director of Conservation and Learning at the National Marine Aquarium as guest expert this month.
The book recommended by Paul for discussion is Psychology for a Better World: Strategies to Inspire Sustainability by Niki Harré, an associate professor at the University of Auckland. The book is for people who believe it is worth trying to make a world in which both our species and the ecological systems we are part of can flourish.
The book is based on the latest research in psychology and is jam packed with action strategies. It offers new ways to think about how people interact in social settings, why we are tempted to stick with what we know, and how the same characteristics that currently keep us hooked into unsustainable practices can be used to move us forward. The final chapter is a guide to help you analyse what you are doing to contribute towards a better world, and how you can be more effective while simultaneously increasing your personal wellbeing.
