Public Attitudes to Environmental Change

This synthesis of academic and non-academic literature highlights what is and is not known about public attitudes to environmental change. It reviews attitudes and responses to: climate change; specific climate change impacts (i.e. flooding, heat stress and rising sea levels); changes in ecosystems, landscapes and species; energy technologies and infrastructure (including renewables, fossil fuels and nuclear energy); and different campaigns and engagement activities and their successes and different theories associated with environmental change attitudes.
