Thesis

The role of research culture, practice and choices in pursuit of sustainability and climate change mitigation

Based in the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations (CAST), this project will examine the cultures, practices and choices within the academic community that affect whether research programmes are themselves in line with a low carbon and sustainable ethos. The project will reveal the extent to which sustainability and climate change research is effectively challenging academic and societal norms around high-emitting activities such as diet, mobility and material consumption. The research is intended to drive forward best practice in the establishment of low-carbon research culture, and to foster in-depth reflection on the role of the social and natural sciences in societal transformation.
