National Representatives

IES representatives, and candidates for 2021, at the International Conference in Spain 2019

Within IES – the International Ecopsychology Society – there is a network of active professionals who, after having participated for at least two years in an associative capacity, have been invited and accepted to take on the role of Representative of the Association in their respective country, to promote and grow the field of Ecopsychology.

National representatives are intermediaries between IES and the associative, academic and research initiatives of their country. They create and coordinate initiatives related to Ecopsychology and create harmonious connections locally. They can organize courses, seminars and events under the patronage of IES. If they attend the training in Applied Ecopsychology recognized by IES, in time, they can open an IES School, coordinated with the other IES Schools in the international network.

In this way, IES seeks to foster the widespread dissemination of Ecopsychology and its possible applications in different areas of civil society, creating an international network of support, exchange and collaboration between professionals of Ecopsychology.
