Meg Roper aka Mrs M (from Mrs M’s Curiosity Cabinet) enthusiastically participated in last year’s Zero Waste Week.
She is by her own admission an energy and waste geek but her interests are not limited to blogging about them. Meg takes an academic interest in waste.
She is currently completing an environmental Masters degree and has proposed to use our Zero Waste Week campaign as the case study for her dissertation.
Meg is particularly interested the power of community and human connections to change habits and daily practices.
During her studies she discovered that numerous researchers are studying communities like Transition Towns and Incredible Edible movements, but that there has been virtually no research into online communities, like the supportive network of makers, bakers and bloggers that has emerged around Zero Waste Week.
Meg is eager to rectify this by taking a closer look at our community to explore what role online communities could play in encouraging small changes that have a big impact.
Meg is looking for your stories.
If you are based in the UK and are happy to be interviewed over Skype, please email her on [email protected]. or drop me a line and I shall pass your details on.
Meg will be scheduling interviews in early spring and will be sharing her findings with us before the next Zero Waste Week (7-13 September 2015).
If you have any questions about the research and process before you make up your mind, feel free to contact Meg directly.
