Join the United Nations Development Programme, Gothenburg Natural History Museum and researchers from the University of Gothenburg for a conversation on the world’s largest climate perception survey and climate action in times of crises.
With 1.2 million respondents, the UNDP Peoples’ Climate Vote is the largest survey of public opinion on climate change ever conducted. Using an innovative survey methodology and mobile gaming networks, the results span 50 countries covering 56% of the world’s population.
The survey reveals how people want their policymakers to tackle the climate crisis. From climate-friendly farming to protecting nature and investing in a green recovery from COVID-19, the survey brings the voice of the people to the forefront of the climate debate.
In this seminar, experts from UNDP and researchers from the University of Gothenburg will present, dissect and discuss the key findings of the survey. What implications could the results have for climate policies globally and in Sweden? What can we learn from the innovative way the study was made? And how can collective action research help us find solutions to accelerate climate action?
