Join my research study?

Are you in a leadership role within an organisation or network that engages with the public on climate change?

Are you interested in joining a co-operative inquiry group to explore and learn about leadership in this context?

This is an opportunity to take part in a co-operative research project. The aim is to improve understanding of what characterises leadership in organisations or networks that engage the public on climate change. The research will involve joining a confidential group which will discuss and explore group members’ experiences of leadership in this context. There is no charge for participating, because the project is part of doctoral studies. Please read on, and if you are interested, contact Rebecca Nestor – ideally by 2 November 2018.

The group will consist of 6-9 people in leadership roles, from different organisations, meeting regularly for about two hours at a time, probably six times over a nine-month period. Members might be in an NGO, a community low-carbon group, a government or quasi-government agency, a campaigning or public engagement charity or coalition, or an academic climate science department with a public engagement strand to its work.

You will need to be interested in exploring your own leadership, open to reaching new understandings, willing to share your experiences with others in a setting of mutual trust and confidentiality, and able to put the time into taking part between January and September 2019 – probably in London.

I hope that the group will be a useful, enjoyable, supportive experience for its members, building our individual capacity for leadership as well as contributing to new knowledge. The idea is that we learn about leadership together.

The project is being conducted as part of my doctoral research at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, accredited by the University of Essex.
