Through the keyhole 2: information on green issues

“I know it’s to save the world…but it’s just so boring.” That’s one student’s damning verdict on the information she gets about climate change. But what do our other five households think? And has information ever led them to action?

As part of our series of ethnographic films looking into people’s lifestyles at home, this film explores what communication our householders get on green issues, and what they think of it.

The households we worked with are: a student in Reading, a single man in Slough, a retired couple in Diss (Norfolk), a family in Newcastle, a retired woman in Liverpool and a family in Sway (Hampshire).
