Storying Perceptions of Climate Change in Wellington ShirePublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
With the help of the Gippsland Climate Change Network, our team interviewed farmers in Wellington Shire, Australia to collect their perceptions of climate change. We compiled 12 video interviews of the farmers, and one long-form video to add to the global collection of climate stories. Most of these farmers were skeptical of man-made climate change, but were still responsive to climate variations, with many using renewable energy and regenerative farming practices. Farmers living within the local irrigation district were mostly optimistic regarding the sustainability of their future. However, those living outside the irrigation district were generally much less confident about the long-term viability of their farms and community.
