Abstract [en]

Since the beginning of the last century the average surface temperature of the earth has increased about +1°C. Scientists and IPCC, Intergovernmental panel of climate change, agree about the human impact on the climate and the biggest cause is the increased emissions of carbon dioxide. The climate change will affect the whole world. In Sweden, the biggest impact from climate change will be in the northern part of the country, therefore this report focused on Kiruna placed in the north of Sweden. The aim of this study was to get an understanding of high school student engagement, interest and acknowledge about the global warming. A questionnaire was given to the students with 16 questions with the purpose to identify how much they care and have learned about climate change in school, the students in this report will graduate in June 2017. The results from the questionnaire were compared between men and women. Many national studies, like this one, has been done and it was interesting to compare the results with them. This study indicates that the overall knowledge about the climate change is rather low among the students, but many of them wants to learn more about it.
