Originally from Australia and with work experience in the fields of tourism, carpentry, and agriculture, David is currently engaged in PhD research focusing on third sector governance actors working to promote sustainable development. The many non-governmental and non-profit organizations often seek change through non-official channels, relying instead on persuasive communications to enlist the support of the general public for positive environmental and societal outcomes. David's research examines the effectiveness of these communications, with an emphasis on effective vegan advocacy. His further research interests include environmental issues, including sustainable tourism and certification, as well as human population dynamics and societal inequality.
