Impact Pathway 6: Enhancing community engagement

We aspire to generate a wave of change towards low carbon living practices among the community, supported by local government planning approvals and incentives. To stimulate both dialogue and demand, CRCLCL research teams are developing collaborative engagement and consultation processes among the community, developers and local government.

We are working with local councils and community groups across Australia to examine attitudes to and preferences around alternative technology and lifestyle options. The establishment of new perspectives on the deeper psychological and cultural barriers to low carbon living in Australia will help form new low carbon living adoption strategies to drive broader community transformation.
