Simran’s research on how psychology can illuminate and transform our collective reluctance to address global social and environmental challenges, and help us foster dialog with unlikely allies.

Simran presented “Why and how do we engage?” about the role of psychology in social and environmental change at TEDxCibeles in June 2012. She spoke about the green brain at Greenbiz conferences in San Francisco and New York City, and at the Adelaide Festival of Ideas in Australia.
