JOIN OUR PROJECT!

We are looking for youth partners for our research project on climate emotions.

We are recruiting youth partners for a participative youth project on how to support youth who experience climate emotions. By climate emotions, we mean emotions such as fear, anxiety, worry and concern when thinking of the climate crisis. Our youth co-researchers will play an integral role in the development of the research project and guiding the creation of a toolkit on dealing with climate emotions. They will also guide what this toolkit consists of (e.g., website, infographics, social media posts, comic book) and with whom we share the toolkit.

We have two types of positions available:

1) Co-Researchers (2-4 positions available)

    • The co-researchers will be key players in all of the steps of the project. They will contribute to the research design and analysis, as well as help create and share the toolkit to support youth who experience climate emotions. They also will participate in steering group meetings.
