Take part in the Big NZ Climate Action Survey

Wednesday, August 30, 2023   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: Climate Change, climate action, survey, research

People often talk about climate action being urgent, as well as about the possibility that adequate climate action might require significant social change. This research from Victoria University of Wellington is exploring how these questions shape people’s decision-making for climate action, in the hope that it can support reflection and discussion about effective and just climate action in Aotearoa.

The research involved a survey that is open to anyone living in Aotearoa New Zealand who is at least 16 years old and who takes any sort of action to respond to climate change. The more people who complete the survey, the more useful the findings will be for supporting climate action in Aotearoa, so please spread the word!

The survey has two main sections. The first of these asks about the social change you think is needed to respond to climate change, and the second asks about the forms of climate action you think can most effectively achieve the needed social change.

The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Doctoral candidate Jonathan Oosterman hopes that you find that completing it provides you with a valuable opportunity to reflect on how you engage with and think about climate change and climate action.

Everyone who completes the survey has the option of going into a draw to win one of twenty $20 supermarket vouchers.

This research has been approved by the Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington Human Ethics Committee (application 000030934).  Research findings will be used in a PhD dissertation, conference presentations, articles, books, and reports.
