The majority of Victorians are optimistic about making a positive difference on climate change and are willing to play their part.
This is evidenced in the Victorians’ Perceptions of Climate Change report – which provides the most comprehensive picture yet of climate change related attitudes, beliefs, expectations and behaviours held by different demographic groups across the state.
The research employed independent expertise and robust survey methods to ensure reliable results that accurately reflect the views of the Victorian population as whole.
The data is based on telephone interviews conducted with 3330 Victorians aged 15 years and over. The sample was stratified to ensure representation across the state with a minimum of 200 interviews conducted per region.
