Crisis and change: cultural-economic research on the adaptability and sustainability of Australian households

Grant


Scheme


  • Future Fellowships

Abstract


  • Through cultural-economic research, this project will document and analyse the critical issue of how Australian households in different places are positioned to adapt to sustainability demands. The decisions of households will be economic in nature, but values informing decisions will stem from cultural norms. Through qualitative research tracking households longitudinally, this research will advance theories of how citizens respond to governmental objectives, and open up climate change research to new lines of inquiry. Results will show whether Australian households are able to adapt to the new carbon economy, amidst economic uncertainty and underlying demographic transition - with global relevance for research and policy.
