CLIMATE AWARENESS SURVEY SHOWS ‘MOTIVATION TO ACT’
The results of the June 2023 climate questionnaire are in.
They have been published in the Herald and show that:
· Most people (72 per cent) are concerned about climate change, with the greatest concern amongst the under 25s and over 65s.
· Most people are doing something already to reduce their carbon footprint, but that is dependent party on age. The most common things are walking or cycling rather than driving, and changes to diet to eat more local/seasonal food with less meat. Most would like to do more.
· About half the people would like additional financial support to help them reduce their carbon footprint and a third want more detailed technical advice. There were lots of suggestions about how local or national Government can help.
The full results of the June 2023 Climate Survey will be published in due course
