Kristina Diprose

 

Kristina is a Research Associate at the Urban Institute and within the Sheffield-Manchester Local Interaction Platform. Her current research projects within the Realising Just Cities research programme focus on what 'just' sustainability means for Sheffield and local implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Her recent research and publications have focussed on: urban residents' views on intergenerational justice, consumption and sustainability; media representations of sustainability; local narratives and moral geographies of climate change; and intergenerational community-based research. She has an MA and a PhD in social geography from the University of Leeds, where her research focussed on voluntary sector ethnography and youth participation. Before joining the University of Sheffield as a postdoc in 2015, Kristina worked for The Young Foundation's 'Socially Sustainable Leeds' project, which combined ethnographic research and community organising.
