As part of PhD research, a Victoria University student is exploring how questions of urgency and systemic change shape people’s decision-making for climate action. This research also looks at disability justice as one of the parts of climate justice.

The survey is open to anyone living in New Zealand who is at least 16 years old and who takes any sort of action to respond to climate change.

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.

It also includes a section asking people if they'd like to participate in focus groups. Sixteen focus groups are planned for late 2023/early 2024. Each focus group will last for two hours, and each participant will be given a $20 supermarket voucher to thank them for their time.

The survey will take about 15 to 20 minutes.

You're encouraged to complete the full survey, but if you are only interested in registering for the focus groups, you can do this by completing a mini-survey that collects information for applying to be in a focus group. Depending on interest, not all those who register for the focus groups will be chosen to participate.
