From maloqueiro to professor: An ongoing psychological journey

In this lecture, Professor Taciano L. Milfont will describe how his love for nature and childhood in Olinda, Pernambuco―Brazil’s best-preserved cultural melting pot―inspired his pioneering research in cross-cultural environmental psychology. He will discuss key research findings and how they can help shape environmental policies, highlighting the multidisciplinary and collaborative nature of his academic career. He will also share how universities’ role as critic and conscience of society drives his scholarly and activist actions within and outside academia.
