Abstract This book aims to give an introduction in environmental psychology. We defi ne environmental psychology as the discipline that studies the interplay between individuals and their built and natural environment. This means that environmental psychology examines the infl uence of the environment on human experiences, behaviour and well - being, as well as the infl uence of individuals on the environment, that is, factors infl uencing environmental behaviour, and ways to encourage pro - environmental behaviour. This book will give an overview of theories and research on each of these topics. In this introductory chapter we fi rst give a brief overview of the history of the fi eld of environmental psychology, followed by a discussion of characteristics of the fi eld and a description of the main methods used in research. The chapter ends with an outline and rationale of the book.
