The University of Dundee and Comrie Development Trust are beginning a three-year research project on how local households use energy, how they travel and a number of other related topics. The project aims to look at issues affecting rural communities with a view to investigating ways to help people reduce their energy consumption, to save money and help prevent climate change.
Volunteers would be expected to participate for a minimum of one year, attend two – three evening discussion groups, and provide information about their households and other lifestyle related topics.
Eligible households that participate will be entered into a draw for several cash/ locally based prizes. The research team is especially interested in volunteers who have never participated in surveys or awareness raising programmes about climate change before this time.
This project is supported by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (venue hire and prizes).
If you would be interested in taking part, or would like more information, please call the CDT office on 01764 670 769 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
