This stage consists of two parts.
The first is a scan of local government programs across Australia.
This includes both those programs that attempt to directly educate their target population about climate change, and those that promote actions which result in emissions reductions (such as solar bulk buys), even though they may not use climate change as a primary motivation.
These interviews are currently underway from August to October 2015.
The second is a series of in-depth interviews with participants from the first round. This will explore issues such as what was the philosophical basis for their current programs. These interviews will run between November 2015 and January 2016.
The findings of the field work will form the basis for the development of an intervention to be tested in 2016.
