This is an abridged version of the summary report of the workshop ''Inspiring Action: The Role of Psychology in Environmental Campaigning and Activism,'' which took place on September 23-24, 2010. The event was co-sponsored by Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR) and Friends of the Earth and brought together a national panel of psychologists and 19 members of the Washington, DC, area environmental community for 2 days of discussions and strategy sessions. Speakers included Tom Crompton, World Wildlife Fund-UK; Tim Kasser, Knox College; Kirk Brown, Virginia Commonwealth University; Janet Swim, Pennsylvania State University; Thomas Doherty, Lewis {&} Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling; Steve Shapiro, Johns Hopkins Medical Institute and PsySR; and Sarah Conn, Earth Circles. Discussions focused on developing new strategies to promote ecologically sustainable life choices, resource and landscape conservation, and effective political action based on recent psychological research on the features of human identity that promote and interfere with pro-environmental attitudes and behaviors.
