The aim of the stall is for visitors 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. Visitors will have the opportunity to take a simple psychometric test for optimism, the LOT-R, and reflect on how their levels of optimism might affect conservation.
