Port Hedland disaster risk education: participants needed for study

A PhD study is looking at how education can benefit residents in areas that are prone to natural disasters. 

CRC Associate Student Liberty Pascua is seeking participants who have experienced cyclones, storms and floods. Liberty would like to speak to Port Hedland, WA residents who have been living in the area for ten years.

The study is part of Liberty’s PhD thesis, undertaken at the University of Sydney, and will form part of her project to investigate and document how residents perceive and understand their natural surroundings and how they manage weather-related hazards. Volunteers must be willing to participate in a one hour recorded interview.

If you are interested in finding out more information about participating in the study, please contact Liberty on liberty.pascua@sydney.edu.au.
