Scholars deliver reports to partners

14 Dec 2022

The 2021 cohort of Global Change Scholars prepared and delivered reports to six public sector organisations grappling with a range of challenges associated with social and environmental change.

The projects, executed over six months in 2022, involved teams of collaborating with organisations to better understand issues and develop recommendations on how to respond.

Transdisciplinary teamwork and research co-design are key components of the Industry Challenge, and each team prepared a report for the industry partner and presented outcomes at a showcase event at UQ’s Global Change Institute in August 2022.

The 2021 reports are listed below and in some cases are available to read. Our scholars have also presented findings from these projects at international conferences, including:

  • Population Global Health Conference 2022 (September).
  • Australasian Association for Theatre, Drama and Performance Studies Conference 2022 (December).
