Kitchen Table Climate Conversations – The project is based on the preamble that change takes place in a small group discussion. It is driven by the need to increase the understanding that the wider community needs to have of the climate emergency, and of the steps that can be taken to respond to this crisis with both personal and political change.
Talking Climate: How can we build Canada’s climate conservation? – Research for the Canadian Narratives Project that looked at public attitudes towards climate, energy, and carbon pricing and developed strategies to discuss climate change that will help to address oppositional narratives.
Open Smart Cities Guide – This research was motivated by a desire to identify international shapers of smart cities and to better understand what differentiates a smart city from an Open Smart City.
