Research Highlights

Stage Two:
Think Tanks

During the Think Tanks, the SCU researchers supported the children to analyse their data using an array of approaches, including child-framed rhizomatic analysis. Through this analysis, the children developed a deeper understanding of the diversity of children and young people's (7-14 years) 'awareness of, attitudes towards and participation in' Mt Tamborine Landcare reserves. The children then drew upon these understandings to inform the development of environmental presentations, child-framed and led activities and resources that increase children and young people's awareness and participation in Mt Tamborine Landcare reserve sites as everyday ecological learning spaces in their local neighbourhoods.
