I am Hanane Abaydi, a master’s student at the University of Humanistic Studies and also an external member of the THUAS Change Management Group/Lectoraat Change Management. I am conducting a narrative study on emotions, perceptions, and support needs regarding climate injustice in higher business education. As a student pursuing a degree in business, your insights are invaluable in helping us understand the challenges and opportunities in teaching climate injustice in business education.
As a business student of THUAS/HHS or RUAS/ Hogeschool Rotterdam, we invite you to participate in this study by sharing your thoughts, experiences, and support needs on climate injustice. You don’t need to know (much) about climate change or climate justice to participate in this research. And if you know a lot about this theme, you are also welcome. And it is not an obligation or an expectation to live a sustainable lifestyle to participate in this study.
How to participate?
You can choose from two options: 1. participating in a one-on-one interview (approximately 30 min) OR 2. joining me – with 4 of your fellow students – in a focus group (approximately 45 minutes). The interviews/focus groups will be in Dutch or English and open from 1-5-2023 to 2-6-2023. Please use this Calendly- link to sign up for the interview or focus group and to choose your financial compensation.
As a token of our appreciation for your participation, we offer you financial compensation (€15 for a 30 min interview, or €20 for a 45 min focus group): you can choose from gift cards, or a donation to the 80/20 funding campaign for indigenous people or receive the financial compensation on your bank account. You will be asked to provide your contact information during registration to be eligible. If you want to receive the compensation on your bank account, you will be asked to share your bank details to transfer the money. Your contact information will not be linked to your responses.
All responses will be kept confidential. The results can be used for future research, policies, and educational initiatives related to climate injustice in higher business education. Please read the UvH-privacy statement to learn more about how we protect your privacy.
Please share this invitation with your fellow students who may be interested in participating in this study.
