About us

Get to know Eψch (ePSIch) a little better

Our Story

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…
