Public perceptions of the health risks of climate change and priorities for action
Can you help?
The department of Health Science at the university of York are looking for people aged 15 years and over and living in England to help with a study looking at people’s thoughts on climate change. There will be two rounds of individual interviews.
If you take part in this study, they would ask you to participate in up to two interviews. The first interview being between January and April 2021, and a second interview in June-July 2021. They plan to run the interviews online via Zoom or Skype, or by telephone. You can tell them which method you would prefer.
The interviews will last for up to 60 minutes each and they will give you a £10 gift voucher to thank you taking part each time.
They will ask you some questions – there are no right or wrong answers – They just want to find out what you think about climate change.
They will record the interviews but all information that you say will be anonymised.
Who is running the study?
The study is led by Professor Hilary Graham at the University of York. The research team also has members from Newcastle University Business School and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The researcher who will run the interviews is Jackie Martin-Kerry who also works at the University of York.
