Call for Participants: youth led climate action


Posted on behalf of Dr. Benjamin Bowman, July 2019

Have you been involved in a climate strike or other youth led climate action? Would you be interested in a research project, including training in research methods like: interview skills, surveys and reporting findings?

I am a researcher at Manchester Metropolitan University looking for participants aged around 14-24 for a project on young people involved in climate action. As well as developing research skills, you can also get involved in: outreach to other young activists, analysing what other participants have to say, outreach to new audiences, and publication as part of the project.

This is a Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) project to empower young people to learn and apply research techniques to support social change. The research is funded by a grant from The Manchester Metropolitan University (UK). Participants can remain anonymous. Full information on data protection, privacy and ethics process will be provided.

For more information, please contact me (see below).

Thank you!
