Making less space for carbon: cultural research for climate change
mitigation and adaptation: aim of the project

Climate change is now widely recognised as requiring social and cultural as
well as scientific solutions. This project builds adaptive capacity for
climate change mitigation and adaptation, using cultural research. In a
context of economic uncertainty, we are interested in examining how people
make sense of climate change within their lived experience and locality, and
how this is shaped by and influenced by government policy and planning, for
example in relation to transport, energy and food infrastructure. Our focus
is on the Illawarra, a region central to Australia's carbon economy. The
overarching aim of the project is to provide international leadership for
comparable regional communities, and contribute to key debates about
human-environment relations.
