PARTICIPANTS NEEDED FOR RESEARCH ON HIGH EFFICIENCY WOODSTOVE PROJECT IN NUNATUKAVUT
Join NunatuKavut Community Council and the University of Prince Edward Island for a Focus Group session at the Black Tickle Community Hall on Thursday, November 2 from 6-8 p.m.
We are looking for volunteers to take part in a study, to evaluate previous energy efficiency/autonomy projects in NunatuKavut, specifically the high efficiency wood stove (HEWS) pilot project. We will assess community-member perceptions of the HEWS project to gain insight to inform future energy-related projects in the region.
If you volunteer to be in this study, your participation will consist of an interview conducted by researchers from the NunatuKavut Community Council and the University of Prince Edward Island.
Your participation would involve one session, which will take approximately 60-90 minutes of your time, with the potential for time to extend to 2 hours with verbal consent.
