The concern towards building a resilient and responsible world is amplified as human societies worldwide are confronted by a pandemic, conflict, and climate change, which have economic, social, and psychological consequences that challenge the sustainable development goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations. These challenges require profound behaviour changes for adaptation and mitigation. Psychological sciences have been working on the relationship between different aspects of these challenges, the cognitive, affective, motivational, interpersonal and organisational, and social responses and processes.
The Annual Conventions of the National Academy of Psychology (NAOP) aim to provide a platform to present, discuss, and debate issues that confront individuals, groups, and communities in this fast-changing world. In this 32nd Annual Convention of NAOP, we invite the psychology fraternity and those from related disciplines to present their work, debate, discuss, and have a dialogue that contributes to building a more resilient and sustainable world. Technology is ubiquitous in our life. Its power can be harnessed by adapting it to increase human efficiency and well-being. The following sub-themes are planned along with the regular sub-disciplines of psychology in this Annual Convention.
The list of topics is indicative and is not limited. Presentations on other socially relevant topics will also be considered.
