Climate Intervention Research Focus Groups

Cooling a Warming Planet? Community Focus Groups on Climate Intervention Research

The purpose of the study is to research lay citizens views to develop large scale public forums on the issue of climate intervention research with a particular focus on solar geoengineering. To investigate lay citizens views,  we are holding focus groups of various size (10-15 or 20-25) and in different locations (see below) to capture personal perspectives from diverse demographic backgrounds.
