Brief description Sustainability and climate change adaptation: unlocking the potential of ethnic diversity. Australian environmental thinking, influenced by comparisons between Indigenous and Anglo-Australian perspectives, has yet to fully engage with the contribution of diverse migrant knowledges and practices. Yet in order to face the challenges of a climate changing world, it is important to draw on the most varied adaptive capacities and cultural resources possible. This project will apply geographic and historical methods to explore the environmental engagements of diverse migrant groups in urban, peri-urban and rural Australia. This work will contribute Australian scholarship to international sustainability debates, and will inform climate change mitigation and adaptation policy approaches at all government levels within Australia.
