Latest survey of Canberra community views on climate change

Filed under How-To Centre

In mid 2013, the ACT Government commissioned a survey to research community views and issues about climate change in the ACT.

The survey found the community has a high awareness of climate change and a willingness to commit to reducing individual household emissions. It found that the community believes it is moderately or very urgent for the ACT Government to take action to tackle climate change at a wider scale.

Below is a summary of the survey’s findings.

Most residents surveyed (88%) believe that climate change is a genuine problem for the future.

ACT householders (84%) believe that actions by householders can help make a difference in tackling climate change, and 68% believe they should personally take more action.

76% of residents believe it is moderately or very urgent for the ACT Government to take action to tackle climate change and 81% want the ACT Government to take a strong leadership role to help ACT residents tackle climate change. On average, ACT residents consider $1.62 per day (per household) an affordable amount to pay to contribute to the cost of new infrastructure and technologies required to reduce carbon emissions.

Most ACT residents (81%) believe they would feel good knowing the ACT Government was taking serious action to tackle climate change, and 79% believe it is a moral duty for the ACT community to take action.

While support for the ACT Government plans to reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change was very high with between 73% and 95% of residents supporting each of 10 suggested initiatives, only 40% of residents believe they are aware of ACT Government plans to reduce carbon emissions.
