Welcome to the Morality, Identity and Environmental Sustainability (MIE) Research Group at Wilfrid Laurier University


Many people consider morality to be an essential part of themselves, yet, this subjective perception often does not lead to corresponding actions. Why? The MIE research group addresses this simple but fundamental question from many different angles. We want to understand what mechanisms strengthen or weaken the link between moral identity and moral action, and how these links develop from childhood through adolescence into adulthood. We apply this research perspective to real-life problems, such as pro-environmental behaviour and individuals' online activities.
