Understanding climate change & its impacts
Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust and the Durham University Psychology Department are collaborating on a research project as part of a placement module to better understand how various members of the public engage with knowledge of climate change and its potential impacts on a local and global scale, and to investigate the factors that motivate pro-environmental views and behaviours in the North East.

Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust is a charity working in the Kielder area, which aims to promote sustainable development, provide recreational facilities, improve knowledge of the natural environment and encourage the arts. Its members are Northumbrian Water, Forestry England, Calvert Kielder, Kielder Observatory Astronomical Society, Northumberland Wildlife Trust, Northumberland County Council and Northumberland National Park Authority.
