It will reveal unheralded patterns of adaptation and innovative responses among ordinary households to the problems of climate change, financial crisis, and demographic transition. Funding this research will provide an opportunity for government to listen to Australian households, and to learn from their experiences as they grapple with contemporary economic, environmental and demographic challenges. It will enhance Australia's ability to become more environmentally sustainable, strengthen the social fabric of communities and reveal vernacular forms of innovation culture.
