Niki Harré

Niki Harré is a lecturer in the School of Psychology and Associate Dean Sustainability in the Faculty of Science at the University of Auckland.

Her recent research projects have focused on sustainable communities and schools, positive youth development and political activism. She also has an irresistible urge to bite the hand that feeds her, venturing into critiques of academia in general and psychology in particular.

Niki cycles to work, learns the guitar from a musician who lives on her street, and has a large organic garden thanks to her spouse. In 2007 Niki edited, with Quentin Atkinson, the book Carbon Neutral by 2020: How New Zealanders Can Tackle Climate Change.

She released new two books in May 2018, The Infinite Game: How to Live Well Together and Psychology for a Better World: Working with People to Save the Planet. She would like a shiFt towards a world that notices people and the natural world we are part of.
