The Pandemic's Effect on Dane's Environmental Behaviour and Climate Related Attitudes



The aim of the project is to investigate how the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced Dane's environmental behaviour and attitudes toward climate related issues. Based on comparative data from autumn 2019, the group of researchers wish to answer the following research questions: Firstly, how societal crises influence environmental behaviour and climate related attitudes. Secondly, the research group wishes to shed light on how - and if - the crisis has changed Dane's thoughts about fundamental values of life and norms of consumption. 

During the autumn of 2019, the group conducted a representative survey and mapped the carbon footprint of Danes. A redistribution of the survey made possible by Carlsberg would enable comparison between the two years and thereby render the effect of the pandemic.
