For eligibility criteria and further application details, please see the full studentship advertisement here

Brief description:

Focusing on the campaigning strategies of prominent environmental pressure group Greenpeace, the project will map the wider ecology, dynamics and evolution of public controversy by analysing the case of campaigning around air pollution, a campaign being both spearheaded by Greenpeace UK and part of the organisation’s broader climate change campaign. Investigating this key campaign strand, the project focuses on communication around air pollution in the context of campaigning on the shift from fossil fuels to renewables in the UK and across Europe.
