Environmental Awareness in Germany 2018

Results of a representative survey

Compared to the last study of 2016, the study on environmental awareness in Germany 2018 shows that the importance of environmental protection and climate action gained in significance in the eyes of the population. The expectations towards relevant actors seem to have increased as well. People see environmental policy as a task to be considered within all political areas. A survey is conducted bi-yearly since 1996, on how environmental awareness and environmental behaviour develop in Germany. For this study in 2018, two representative survey waves with 2.000 people each were run.The study offers a social sciences based foundation for environmental policy and environmental communication and is addressed towards substantively interested members of the public.
