Project title: Impacts to Students from Climate Change Events
Project aim: To explore the relationship between extreme climate change events on student health, safety and wellbeing. RMIT has identifed there is a gap in understanding of the impacts of severe climate change events on our student population. This project is to further explore RMIT’s understanding of the type and severity of impacts to students as a result of climate change and outline recommendations on how RMIT can assist our students in becoming more resilient. Ideally, the project should go through the Ethics approval process to be able to survey students to get perspective on impacts.
