Its implications for teaching and learning were explored in a companion article:

EcoTypes development and applications have been documented in a variety of conference presentations, summarized below in reverse chronological order.
- EcoTypes was presented at the 2021 Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting.
- EcoTypes has been introduced to instructors via a series of workshops held at annual Association for Environmental Studies & Sciences conferences, of which the most recent took place July 2020; here is the brief overview presentation.
- EcoTypes and engagement were applied to the theme (Inclusion and Legitimacy) of the June 2018 Association for Environmental Studies & Sciences Annual Meeting in Washington, DC as a followup to the 2017 sessions below. Here are related presentations.
- EcoTypes: Expanding Ideas, Discovering Disagreement, Practicing Engagement (Jim Proctor, Lewis & Clark College)
- Policy Orientation Diversity (Mark Neff and Zander Albertson, Western Washington University)
- The Power of EcoTypes: Survey, Results, Axes and Themes as Teaching and Learning Tools in Introductory [Undergraduate] Environmental Studies Courses (joni palmer, University of New Mexico)
- The Role of Ecotypes in Engagement Across Differences (Susan Caplow, University of Montevallo)
- EcoTypes, and the broader theme of engagement, were featured in two sessions at the Association for Environmental Studies & Sciences Annual Meeting in Tucson in June 2017. Below are three related presentations.
- EcoTypes: Creative Tensions in Environmental Ideas (Jim Proctor, Lewis & Clark College)
- Pluralism, Pragmatism, Civil Disagreement: A Proposed Framework for Engagement (Emma Brush, The Breakthrough Institute)
- Contemporary Environmental Typologies: Renewing the New Environmental Paradigm Scale (Jennifer Bernstein, University of Southern California)
- EcoTypes was introduced via a discussion document, “Situating Ecomodernism via EcoTypes,” introduced at the June 2015 Breakthrough Institute Dialogue. Subsequent development added a number of axes to the original six, and expanded the scope of EcoTypes to include a survey and extensive resources for participants.
