Research study

Perspectives of pro-environment adults on air travel and the environment

Our research team from Laurentian University in Ontario is currently conducting a study entitled ‘Perspectives of pro-environment adults on air travel and the environment’. We are inviting you to participate in this study.

  • Purpose of the study: The purpose is to learn about your perspective on air travel and the environment.

  • Participant selection: Any Canadian or resident of Canada at least 19 years old is eligible to participate in this study if they are pro-environmental and/or a member of a pro-environment organization.

  • Nature of participation: You are invited to a 40-60 minute interview, one on one, with a researcher from our team. We will proceed by videoconference. During this interview, we will ask you questions about your attitudes, your knowledge and your actual behaviour relative to the environment and air travel. There will also be a few socio-demographic questions. In order to get an accurate record of what you say, the videoconference will be recorded.

  • Risks: There are no expected physical, social, or economic risks to participating in this study.

  • There is no compensation for participating in this study. There is no direct benefit to you other then to potentially increase insight and self-knowledge produced by answering certain questions. The overall results of this study will advance academic knowledge on the psychology of air travel and the environment.

  • If you are interested to participate or if you have questions, please contact the main investigator. Looking forward talking with you.
