International Conference of Community Psychology

Fostering and Sustaining Solidarities: Communities, Activism, Knowledges and Environment

Melbourne, Australia, June 26th-28th, 2020

ICCP2020 builds on previous conferences and is based in Melbourne and the broader Asia-Pacific region. This location was originally and continues to be home to many Aboriginal communities. 

This conference seeks to celebrate and interrogate the ways solidarities are fostered and sustained within community contexts, across borders and boundaries, digital and non-digital spaces, and through process of knowledge production. The conference seeks to give a critical platform to the ideas and work emerging from coalitions with practitioners, artists, educators, activists, and diverse communities. We are interested in exploring and showcasing scholarship, activism, practice, and critical scholarly engagement, from around the world that seeks to bring about sustainability, inclusivity, and wellbeing for all.
