Transition City Lancaster are doing a joint survey with the University of Central Lancashire about the effects of the flight cancellations owing to the recent Volcanic activity in Iceland. They are gathering as much information as possible about how people adapted, what they felt about the event, the reaction of the agencies involved, and the consequences for the passengers themselves.
You can do the survey here – and here’s some blurb:
Stranded away? Trip Delayed, Cancelled?
We would like to hear your story and views.
A survey of people affected by the air crisis has been launched by the Institute of Transport and Tourism (University of Central Lancashire) .
The survey can be found on survey monkey and the Institute is urging people to send the link to anyone they know who has been affected and to send it out through their networks.
“It is important to get as much systematic data as we can,” said Jo Guiver, the researcher initiating the survey. “Once the dust has settled, literally, the story about what happened and how people felt about it will change. We are hoping our findings will be useful for airlines, government and others involved and mean we are better prepared should a similar emergency, caused by terrorism, fuel shortages, health scares or whatever, arise in the future.”
Here’s that survey link again, and thanks to Shaun for letting us know.
