Low Carbon Schools: Reducing Carbon Emissions & Fostering Intergenerational Change
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the barriers, enablers and strategies schools use to reduce their carbon emissions and how students can influence their families around low carbon living. The research uses a mixed-methods design, including interviews, focus groups, surveys and analysis of utility consumption and cost data. Results showed that emissions reductions can be made with minimal cost outlay and confirms that schools can have a significant positive impact within the wider community through students influencing their families about sustainability.
