Using the daylight savings clock change to show ambient light conditions significantly influence active travel
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Jim Uttley, Steve Fotios This article reports a novel procedure used to investigate whether ambient light conditions affect the number of people who choose to walk or cycle. Pedestrian and cyclist count data were analysed using the biannual daylight-saving clock changes to compare daylight and after-dark conditions whilst keeping seasonal and time-of-day factors constant. Changes in frequencies during a 1-h case period before and after a clock change, when light conditions varied...
Preschoolers' moral judgments of environmental harm and the influence of perspective taking
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Erin R. Hahn, Marybeth K. Garrett We asked whether preschoolers view the environment as a moral concern. In Study 1, preschoolers rated the morality of actions that harmed either the environment or another person, as well as non-harmful behaviors. 3-year-olds equated behaviors that harmed the environment with those that targeted people. Older preschoolers, however, rated behaviors that harmed people as being worse than those that damaged the environment. In the second study, we...
Making Cool Choices for sustainability: Testing the effectiveness of a game-based approach to promoting pro-environmental behaviors
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Michael Ro, Markus Brauer, Kathy Kuntz, Raj Shukla, Ingo Bensch Attempts to get people to reduce their carbon footprint have had mixed success at best, as many interventions focus primarily on increasing awareness or knowledge. Gamification has recently been used to break habits and induce enduring behavior change. Building upon this work, we designed a new game-based sustainability intervention and tested its effectiveness in two large-scale field studies (total N = 1975). In...
Does the value-belief-norm theory predict acceptance of disincentives to driving and active mode choice preferences for children's school travels among Chinese parents?
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Trond Nordfjærn, Mohsen Fallah Zavareh The present study examined the extent to which the value-belief-norm (VBN) theory predicts acceptance of disincentives to driving among Chinese parents and parental active transport mode use preferences (i.e. walking and bicycling) for their children's school travels above and beyond demographics, transport availability and walking evaluations. In total, 250 questionnaires were distributed among parents of 7–9 years old pupils attending two...
Which is the greater good? A social dilemma paradigm disentangling environmentalism and cooperation
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Sina A. Klein, Benjamin E. Hilbig, Daniel W. Heck In previous research, pro-environmental behavior (PEB) was almost exclusively aligned with in-group cooperation. However, PEB and in-group cooperation can also be mutually exclusive or directly conflict. To provide first evidence on behavior in these situations, the present work develops the Greater Good Game (GGG), a social dilemma paradigm with a selfish, a cooperative, and a pro-environmental choice option. In Study 1, the GGG and a...
Saving energy in the workplace: Why, and for whom?
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Caroline Leygue, Eamonn Ferguson, Alexa Spence Saving energy at work might be considered altruistic, because often no personal benefits accrue. However, we consider the possibility that it can be a form of impure-altruism in that the individual experiences some rewards. We develop a scale to measure motivations to save energy at work and test its predictive power for energy-saving intentions and sustainable choices. In two studies (N = 293 and N = 94) motivations towards helping...
Do the hospital rooms make a difference for patients’ stress? A multilevel analysis of the role of perceived control, positive distraction, and social support
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Cláudia Campos Andrade, Ann Sloan Devlin, Cícero Roberto Pereira, Maria Luísa Lima The physical environment of healthcare settings can contribute to preventing or reducing patients' stress. Using Ulrich's theory of supportive design (1991), this study tested whether this relationship occurs because the physical environment promotes perceptions of control, positive distractions, and social support. The research disentangles the contribution of the objective qualities of physical...
Toward a theory of farmer conservation attitudes: Dual interests and willingness to take action to protect water quality
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Kristin Floress, Silvestre García de Jalón, Sarah P. Church, Nicholas Babin, Jessica D. Ulrich-Schad, Linda S. Prokopy Water quality in the Midwestern United States is threatened as a result of agricultural runoff. Based on self-reported data from a survey of farmers in Indiana, we aim to provide a better understanding of how awareness of water quality problems, farm-as-business attitudes, and stewardship attitudes are related to each other and willingness to improve water...
The relationships of political ideology and party affiliation with environmental concern: A meta-analysis
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Shannon M. Cruz This study reports the results of two meta-analyses investigating the relationships between environmental concern and both political party affiliation and political ideology. Political party affiliation was found to have a substantial association with environmental concern (ρ = 0.22), as was political ideology (ρ = 0.27). Both relationships could also be corrected for error of measurement and restriction in range, yielding corrected effect sizes of ρ’ = 0.30 and...
Moderating effects of pro-environmental self-identity on pro-environmental intentions and behaviour: A multi-behaviour study
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): V. Carfora, D. Caso, P. Sparks, M. Conner Self-identity is considered as a useful additional predictor in the theory of planned behaviour (TPB). However, previous research generally assessed the impact of pro-environmental self-identity in relation to single behaviours and no studies considered its potential role in moderating the impact of other predictors on behaviour. The present research used a within-persons approach to examine effects across behaviours and a longitudinal design...
“Battlefields” of blue flags and seahorses: Acts of “fencing” and “de-fencing” place in a gold mining controversy
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Tasos Hovardas The objective of the present study was to investigate how meanings of place were constructed to shape contrasting positions in a gold mining conflict in Greece, and the implications of these dynamics for place-attachment. A social divide has gradually deepened in the area, separating employees of the mining company, on the one side, from residents involved in agriculture, forestry, fishing, and tourism, on the other. Local people engaged in the conflict were interviewed and...
‘I'll be driving you to school for the rest of your life’: A qualitative study of parents' fear of stranger danger
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Jacinta Francis, Karen Martin, Lisa Wood, Sarah Foster Parents' concern about children's safety is a recurring theme in studies exploring children's independent mobility and play. However, few studies have investigated neighbourhood features influencing parents' fear of strangers harming their child, nor the extent to which this fear is influenced by socio-economic status (SES). We explored i) parents' perceived risk of, and fear of, stranger danger; ii) physical and social...
Preferences for car sharing services: Effects of instrumental attributes and psychological ownership
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Joshua Paundra, Laurens Rook, Jan van Dalen, Wolfgang Ketter Car sharing services gain momentum as a potential alternative to various modes of transportation, including privately owned cars. This trend goes hand in hand with a renewed interest in the sharing economy, which has as essential premise that product ownership is of minor relevance. Using an online experiment, this study investigates if individual differences in psychological ownership influence the effects of well-known...
Children prefer a nonstandardized to a standardized jumping stone configuration: Playing time and judgments
01. November 2017
Publication date: November 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 53 Author(s): Karlijn Sporrel, Simone R. Caljouw, Rob Withagen Over the last decades, the omnipresent standardization of contemporary playgrounds has been criticized for several reasons. The present study examined whether children prefer a nonstandardized or a standardized jumping stone configuration. Children were free to play in both configurations, alone or in a group of four. After the playing the children were to rate how beautiful they found each configuration, and how much they enjoyed...

Heterogeneity in individual adaptation action: Modelling the provision of a climate adaptation public good in an empirically grounded synthetic population
01. Oktober 2017
Publication date: October 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 52 Author(s): Friedrich Krebs Adaptation to climate change depends to a significant extent on behavioural change in the form of individual adaptation action. We investigate the case of urban neighbourhood activation for the support of the elderly during the more likely occurring extreme heat waves generated by climate change. The proposed integrative theoretical consideration makes on the one hand reference to social dilemma theory and on the other to concepts from behavioural theory and social...
Modeling multi-level mechanisms of environmental attitudes and behaviours: The example of carsharing in Berlin
01. Oktober 2017
Publication date: October 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 52 Author(s): Tobias Schröder, Ingo Wolf Psychological research practices are often prone to individualistic biases, emphasizing individual-level mechanisms of attitudes, behaviour, and persuasion, while neglecting the dynamics of communication in social networks. We illustrate with our InnoMind simulation model how agent-based modeling as a research method can account for the multi-level interactions between information processing in individual brains and flows of information in societies. InnoMind...
Using agent-based modeling to explore policy options supporting adoption of natural gas vehicles in Indonesia
01. Oktober 2017
Publication date: October 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 52 Author(s): Bertha Maya Sopha, Christian A. Klӧckner, Dona Febrianti The diffusion of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) has been slow although the government has already developed infrastructures and regulations to enable the uptake. This paper attempts to understand the consumers’ adoption decision-making and to explore potential policy interventions favoring the uptake. Two models are compared: a non-psychological model and a psychological model. Using Agent-based Social Simulation, the...
An agent-based model for diffusion of electric vehicles
01. Oktober 2017
Publication date: October 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 52 Author(s): Ayla Kangur, Wander Jager, Rineke Verbrugge, Marija Bockarjova The transition from fuel cars to electric cars is a large-scale process involving many interactions between consumers and other stakeholders over decades. To explore how policies may interact with consumer behavior over such a long time period, we developed an agent-based social simulation model. In this model, detailed data of 1795 respondents have been used to parameterise an agent architecture that addresses different...
