This qualitative study seeks to gain an insight into the public’s attitudes and positions on environmental public policy, particularly in the context of the current public debate around the policy response to the threat of climate change. This project will also seek to compare and contrast how positions are shared or different across people from different regions, demographics, community characteristics and political preference. The outcomes of this study will be used to inform the message framing of climate change mitigation policy.

The project is currently awaiting ethics committee approval.

Funding: QAEHS salary funds, Summer scholarship
