SCHIRMER Jacki

Jacki Schirmer is a Professor at the University of Canberra. Her research focuses on the intersection between human wellbeing and natural resource management: how the ways we manage and interact with the natural environment and natural resources influence our wellbeing – and how our wellbeing affects our capacity to sustainably manage natural resources. She leads the annual Regional Wellbeing Survey, which examines the wellbeing, resilience and experiences of 15,000 Australians. Her work has included studies examining how engaging in natural resource management activities such as landcare groups can have social benefits, building resilience to drought and natural disasters, the impacts of changes to agricultural, fishing and forest-dependent industries, and the effects of engaging in nature-based recreation on wellbeing and sustainable behaviour.
