Project Details


The research will explore:
RQ1. The current mindset of young people from diverse backgrounds regarding the unfolding climate and ecological disaster
RQ2. What types of knowledge and understanding they feel would enable them to better deal with the issue in their own way?
RQ3. How they would like to learn and experience this knowledge and understanding
RQ4. How arts-based experiences can facilitate learning about the CEE in young people from diverse backgrounds

Layman's description

The research seeks to develop new knowledge about how young people can best respond to the CEE, and how artistic experiences can facilitate this. It will do this within a distributed leadership paradigm founded on trust and equity among team members and participants. Evaluative and reflective opportunities for all involved are an essential feature of the research design so as to enable the articulation of newly coined learning in relation to the issue. The research connects specifically with Brigstow’s areas of interest as it addresses living well with uncertainty.
