CHR wins ESRC Festival of Social Science Event

Monday 04 July 2016

CHR has been successful in applying for an ESRC Festival of Social Science Event. The Festival runs annually and this year will take place between the 2nd and 15th of November. It is designed to provide insight into some of the country's leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives - both now and in the future.

The CHR event will be linked to Louise Reid's ongoing ESRC Future Research Leaders grant: ‘Smarter Homes; a netnographic exploration of low carbon living’, and will involve working with secondary school teachers from across Scotland to develop new teaching materials for the National 5 and Higher Geography curriculum, specifically the Global Climate Change section. The teaching materials will provide real life examples and data that can be used by pupils and teachers across Scotland, based on research ongoing within CHR. To read more about the event, go to the Smarter Homes Website, or to find out about other ESRC Festival events follow #esrcfestival.
