This event brings together leading social scientists from the University of Salford, the University of Lancaster, the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and SPRU – University of Sussex. They will present fresh evidence on how citizens can be meaningfully engaged in informed debates around energy and environmental issues (including hydrogen, wind and other low carbon energy technologies), how energy-relevant behaviours and consumption are shaped and embedded in everyday life, and how they can be changed. The programme comprises presentations, plenary and group discussions.
Participation to this event is free and will allow you to:
• Discover the findings from the latest social science research on public engagement in different energy sources and technologies
• Learn about different innovative methodologies of involving the public, their opportunities and challenges
• Improve your understanding of consumer attitudes and behaviour towards energy and the environment
• Share best practice and exchange knowledge and information
• Identify new opportunities for collaboration
Registration is free, but you need to reserve a place via email. See the event homepage for more details.
