About the annual theme

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, it has become clear that this unprecedented situation has left a lasting impact on various communities everywhere around the world. It is more important than ever before to use social, cultural, economic, political, environmental, and international influences to promote positive change and address issues that may negatively impact different communities. The pandemic has also further ostracized vulnerable groups increasing the challenges and disadvantages they face. Because of this psychologists are focusing on finding various ways to help communities as well as disenfranchised individuals, who are feeling disconnected from their local communities.  

As a student organisation, we see the potential and necessity to guide research practices towards issues that are relevant and that require our attention as psychologists.

Our programme will provide a platform for cross-cultural research and allow you to develop research projects that may contribute to the understanding of as well as the implementation of findings of Community Psychology. As we strongly believe that the importance of this has never been greater.
