The Italian Institute of Culture and the Italian Consulate General in Edinburgh, in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University, are pleased to promote in Scotland and beyond the online survey "ClimateWakeUp!Quiz" created by ENEA (Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development).

What do we know about climate change and how is it affecting our daily lives? How much do we know about the things we can do to fight against climate change and what are governments doing to tackle it? The aim of the survey is to gather data on the most common climate change beliefs and strengthen the dialogue between the academics and the general public as part of the background for COP26 in Glasgow (October 31 - November 12, 2021).

The questionnaire is anonymous and will take about 15 minutes to complete.

It includes 20 questions on topics such as:

  • climate and global warming,
  • costs and impacts of climate change,
  • sectors generating the largest share of greenhouse gas emissions,
  • policies, strategies, expectations and good practices.

The answers will be published on the ENEA and Italian Institute of Culture websites and social media accounts.

"Finding out what we know about climate change is important to remove behavioural barriers and understand how to develop effective communication strategies; for this reason we encourage the widest possible participation in the initiative", says Melania Michetti, researcher at the ENEA Division of Models and Technologies for Anthropic Impacts and Natural Risks Reduction. Moreover Michetti continues "We also believe that raising public awareness is key to promoting a bottom-up socio-cultural change, capable of triggering virtuous behaviours and guiding a real and effective transition to a more sustainable and resilient society".

The questionnaire was designed at the ENEA Department of Sustainability of Productive and Territorial Systems, which develops new production and consumption systems based on sustainable use of resources, reduction of emissions and related impacts, land management - including marine-coastal areas- and mitigation of hydrogeological and seismic risks.
