This workshop will look at the psychology of optimism, and how this might impact decision-making in conservation. The aim of the session is for participants to understand what optimism is from a psychological perspective, and how optimism can affect the way we interact with the world and the decisions we make. Participants will take a simple psychometric test for optimism, the LOT-R, and reflect on how their levels of optimism might affect any conservation decisions they make.

For the workshop to run effectively, all participants will need an electronic device with internet access (e.g. smart phone/iPad).
