  • Presidential address,by Eddie Edgerton

    Dear IAPS member,Welcome to the final IAPS bulletin of 2013 and the second bulletin that has been produced in electronic format; I hope you will agree that the new electronic format fulfils the wishes and expectations of the IAPS community.

    Whilst 2013 represents an in-between year in terms of the IAPS biennial conference, it has still been a busy and productive year, not least due to the excellent and well-attended symposium that was held in A Corua in June. Many of the discussions that took place at this symposium focused on the desire for additional, smaller IAPS events that would provide further opportunities for dialogue and exchange between IAPS members. Some interesting proposals were discussed and we hope to make announcements about this in 2014.

    As IAPS President, I recently attended the 4th Latin American Environmental Psychology conference (CIPA) that was held in Mexico City in September; this event was also attended by the IAPS Secretary (Ricardo Garcia Mira). This was a highly stimulating event that showcased much of the excellent research in environment-behaviour studies that is being conducted to address both general environmental issues and those that are specific to Latin America. It also provided an opportunity to connect with IAPS members in various Latin American countries whilst at the same time

    allowing us to promote IAPS to a new audience. However, at the same time it is with great sadness that I have to report the tragic death of Ana Maritza Landzuri-Ortiz. Ana Maritza was instrumental in organising this conference and the previous CIPA conferences and in forging strong links with IAPS. The conference concluded with a very moving and appropriate tribute to Ana Martiza and on behalf of IAPS I would like to dedicate this edition of the Bulletin to Ana Martiza.

    2014 also promises to be a busy and exciting year, not least with the biennial conference in Timisoara in June 2014. However, there are many other initiatives to look forward to such as the publication of the IAPS 22 Post-Conference Book, upcoming Board elections and a highly topical, thematic edition of the next IAPS Bulletin, to name but a few.

    I would like to end by thanking you all for your support and continued membership of IAPS. I hope to see you in Timisoara in 2014 and wish you all a very peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.Dr Edward Edgerton, IAPS President

  • Welcome to this issue number 40 of the Bulletin of People-environment Studies. This is the second issue published in the new electronic format. As editorial team, we hope that the IAPS members will keep on appreciating this new format. So far, the reactions to the first issue have been positive and supportive, as it emerged from many informal talks that we could have during the last months within many of you.

    In the present issue, as usual, you will find a good mix of contribution from different disciplinary fields, treating different topics, from different countries and continents, and from young and less young scholars.

    You will also find important news about the forthcoming 23rd IAPS Conference in Timisoara. We hope that many will attend and enjoy the conference, the young researcher
