Investigating the influence of work and home domains on environmental behaviours


Hello, my name is Connar and I am the principal investigator for this project.

On behalf of the research team, I would like to invite you to participate in a questionnaire that asks about your thoughts on work, the university, the environment and the community.

Specifically, the research aims to understand the relationship between work or study places and environmental attitudes and behaviours.

As such, we are looking for people who work or study at the James Cook University Townsville, Cairns or Singapore campus only.

The research team includes myself and Anne Swinbourne from Psychology at James Cook University.

The research team also include five Psychology students, Breah Kean, Chloe Taylor, Alexandria Morris, Nitchanan Campbell and Stephen Vann, who are working on this project as a part of their 4th year research thesis.

If you agree to be involved in the study, you will be invited to complete a questionnaire. The questionnaire should only take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

The questionnaire is available as a paper copy or can be accessed via the following weblink http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2133388/Work-home-and-the-environment.

By completing and returning this questionnaire you are indicating your consent to participate in this project.

Taking part in this study is completely voluntary and you can stop taking part in the study at any time without explanation or prejudice.

If you know of others that might be interested in this study, can you please pass on this information sheet to them so they may contact me to volunteer for the study.

Your responses will be anonymous.

The data from the study will be used in research publications, reports and in the 4th year student thesis. You will not be identified in any way in these publications.

If you have any questions about the study, please contact Connar McShane.
