Two surveys for local stuff

I’m on a lot of different email lists and as a result sometimes I get links to various surveys that people are doing on things like bike usage or knowledge of fish.

I dunno. Not really knowledge of fish, but stuff like that.

Anyway, I want to share them with people but I’m always aware of needing to strike a balance and not flood the Facebook group with too much stuff. (I’m information-exhausted and I suspect most people out there are, too. See: yesterday’s post about kittens.)

But, here are two that I thought were cool and that might benefit from sharing with you readers. Both are short to fill out, and allow you to add your stats to a study which will make an impact in some way.

Survey One: Bras d’Or Lakes Biosphere Reserve // branding and signage

“We are graduate students in Dalhousie University’s Faculty of Management conducting research to create a strong branding and signage strategy for the Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere Reserve Association. The purpose of this study is to gauge community awareness of the Biosphere. You have been invited to participate in this survey because you are a member of a community that is located in or adjacent to the biosphere, or because you have expressed interest in the association and are a part of their mailing list.

This online survey will take approximately 15 minutes of your time, and any responses that you submit will be remain confidential, anonymous, and be stored on a secure, password protected server. The results of this survey will be included in a report that will be shared with the Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere Association’s Board of Executives.

If you would like to help out by filling out this survey, please do so by November 9th, 2012. Please click on the link to begin the survey:

Survey Two: Third Annual Global Coworking Study

Right now they meet in various places for coworking afternoons every now and again. The guy to email for more information is Darren MacDonald, and his email address is

  2. haha, love Brooke’s response 🙂

    I filled out the coworking one. I LOVE coworking! I am part of one in Montreal and it is the best thing ever! (see I really think Sydney would benefit from something like that. It allows you to work, side by side with other (usually inspiring, usually creative and entrepreneurial) people, motivates you, and helps you in your work in numerous ways (networking, idea sharing, etc.). For free-lancers or people starting a business, it is definitely the way to go!
