PostPosted: Mon Sep 05, 2005 3:43 pm    Post subject: PowerSwitch Survey? Reply with quote

I am offering to co-ordinate a survey carried out on behalf of PowerSwitch but I need the help of 20 or so other members.

I idea would be to devise a 4 or 5 item questionnaire to be conducted in 20 locations around the country on a specific day in (say) November. If we could each get 100 responses we could then devise a press-release that would promote our cause and raise the profile of the organisation.

It would also give us a chance to spread the word and give out leaflets.

We could also harvest e-mail addresses to forward on more information.

Here are some suggested Yes/No questions?

A) Do you expect oil and petrol prices to continue rising for the next few years?

B) Do you think that the government should stop the rise or reduce fuel duty?

C) Has the rise in petrol and diesel prices this year made you reduce the number of miles you travel?

D) Given that 25% of all road freight traffic involves transporting food, do you think it's time for supermarkets to re-organise their distribution networks on a more local basis?

E) Have you considered changing your job or house because of the contining rise in fuel prices?

F) Have you heard of the term 'Peak Oil' or 'oil depletion?

G) Will higher fuel prices affect your own job security?

Any comments? Volunteers?

If we could wear a PowerSwitch T-shirt whilst doing it, then I'm game.

I'd prefer to pair up with someone, though - anywhere from Reading to Winchester to Guildford to Watford. Possibly around Southampton as well.

Seems the T-shirt issue could be crucial to the success of this - aside from the possible discomfort of wearing one in November, when are they going to be printed?

Very Happy

Okay, you wanted T-shirts, you got 'em.

I've done a basic design here.

If you want to send me a design to upload, I can do that.

I could also get a load made seperately if there is definite interest, and thus could make it a bit cheaper probably.

BUY A POWERSWITCH T-SHIRT

Please don't stray off-topic.

Can Bandidoz and RogerCO please cut and paste their respective posts into the T-shirts thread and delete the entries here?

It's neater that way as I have no ability to move individual posts, just split topics and I'd rather not have a T-shirts2.

Thanks,
DamianB
