Super wicked problems, practice and transition theory solutions
This thesis is the result of research looking at Australian local government community engagement / behaviour change programs designed to respond to climate change.
In particular, I examined the impact of two major influences on the shape of climate change community engagement: the rise of rooftop solar and the climate emergency movement.
I drew upon practice theory to produce a fuller picture of the complex relationships between what people do and how local governments seek to influence them.
