About usGet to know Eψch (ePSIch) a little better
EΨch in a nutshell
EΨch (ePSIch) is an independent digital platform on the interactions between people and the built and natural environment. Our mission is to promote environmental psychology as a science that can contribute to solving some of the world’s most pressing issues today. By making our expertise accessible to other professionals like architects, designers, policy makers, planners, and engineers, we hope to bridge the gap between knowledge and practice, and form an inclusive, international, trans-disciplinary community inspired to create scientifically backed solutions.
How it all started
We were frustrated about the little presence of environmental psychology in design, engineering, planning, architecture, and generally, daily life. It seemed strange that such a fundamentally applied science was not known to many, thus causing a disconnect between knowledge and real-life application. Then we started thinking what if… and so the idea of EΨch was born.
Mission and vision
Our mission is to spread environmental psychology research and share our knowledge to help create better spaces and improve lives all over the globe. A little ambitious you say? Well, then you haven’t met us yet…
