Community Climate Change Response Research Project – Call for Interviewees

Newsletters, The Scoop

Robert Perey from UTS has requested our assistance in putting the call out for research participants within our region. His research project is looking at how people make day-to-day decisions in their workplaces and lives in light of the global debate about the causes and impacts of their activities on climate change, biodiversity loss and resource scarcity. 

The particular focus for this study is the Hunter Region, due to the prominence of coal mining, the importance of manufacturing and agriculture, the consolidation of tourism, and the emergence of the renewable energy sector, in the regional economy. The project is investigating ecological, social and economic transformations occurring in the Hunter Region and Robert is seeking people from all walks of life that would be willing to be involved.  

This project involves interviewing individuals across the ten local government areas of the Hunter Region, including the Mid Coast, engaged in small and large businesses, agriculture, manufacturing, mining, government, community organisations, education, and health care. 

The project is being lead by Dr Robert Perey, an Adjunct Fellow at UTS, who works conjointly with the Business Faculty and the Institute for Sustainable Futures. 

If you are interested in participating in this research project or would like more information, please contact Dr Robert Perey on 0401 989 201 or
