Abstract [en]

This study looked at local concern and knowledge about and commitment to climate change in the municipality of Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. The purpose of the study was to explore the difference in knowledge and the levels of concern shown, relating to climate change amongst genders and differing age brackets. The theoretical roots of the study are to be found within a WWFs survey from 2017 and survey from the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation conducted (Naturskyddsverket) in 2015. The data collection from this study was undertaken within the local population and consisted of 426 individuals across a diverse range of ages over 16 years old. The result of the study found that a majority of participants showed a high level of awareness when it came to the topic of climate change. However female respondents showed a higher level of knowledge and interest in the subject matter compared to the male respondents. The study also shows that most people believe they have personally experienced the effects of global warming, yet know little about the work being done to address the issue of climate change and global warming by local authorities.
