The Bigger Picture
Community-Scale Climate Action
What is the relationship between income and carbon footprint, and how do we reduce household carbon footprints as a community? A recently released animation on the CRC HEAD Talks channel, entitled The Bigger Picture, explores these questions. Created through partnership between Community Research Connections and the University of Alberta and as a complement to research done in the energy theme of the Solutions Agenda project, the video shares outcomes and ideas from research conducted by University of Alberta based researchers, Kennedy, H. Krahn and Krogman, which examines this relationship in the context of individuals and households of Alberta. However, insights from the research are applicable beyond Alberta, and the video concludes with a systems approach on how individuals and communities throughout North America (and potentially elsewhere) can reduce carbon footprints.
