Due to inclement weather, Dr. Kasser's discussion will be rescheduled for another date.
In-Depth Discussion with Tim Kasser
The Institute for Sustainable Solutions and Portland Center for Public Humanities are pleased to offer an in-depth discussion with Tim Kasser on the psychology of identity, values, and sustainability. This discussion is a continuation of the ideas presented in his public lecture on February 2, 2011. Tim Kasser's research is internationally recognized for its focus on the relationships between human identity (including our values, our sense of social identity, and the ways we cope when threatened), how we communicate about sustainability and the links between consumption and well-being.
Please review over the following papers prior to the workshop.
- Human Identity: A Missing Link in Environmental Campaigning
- Psychological Need Satisfaction, Personal Well-Being, and Ecological Sustainability
