NPU-T (West End) Request from U.G.A. Anthropologist

My name is Dave Himmelfarb and I am an anthropologist working with colleagues at the University of Georgia and US Forest Service on a project regarding climate change and community in southwest Atlanta. We would love to speak with residents of the West End. Specifically, we would like to hear your thoughts about the changing climate and about how weather, especially severe heat, affects your lives. As the climate is projected to become increasingly hot and dry in the Atlanta region over the coming years, it will be important to understand how people are exposed to the weather and how they responded to it both in the present and the past. We plan on publishing the results of our research and hope to make recommendations for policy makers that reflect the thoughts, desires, and experiences of our research participants.

If you are interested in participating in a 20-30 minute phone or in-person interview, please email me at daveh@uga.edu or call 706 254 1740
