RESEARCH

"It is my belief that in order to motivate individuals to take action on climate change, their humanity must be engaged and their minds and hearts moved. Through this research endeavour, I aim to uncover the universal emotions that underpin our human experience; that call to our humanity and catalyse deep and change-making thought." Moulis (2020)

In 2020, I completed a thesis under the supervision of the Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation at the University of Technology Sydney, analysing the role of storytelling in climate change communication and education. I presented the novel finding that storytelling experiences have the potential to evoke the same emotions as those exhibited during behaviour-changing life events, alluding to the potential for narratives to motivate and sustain individual action on social issues.

My research was awarded a First Class Honours is scheduled to be presented at the Sydney Climate Action Summit Expo later this year.​
