# Environmental attitudes in Europe

## European Values Study Wave 5 (2017-2018) and the 'likert' package

The climate protests in March 2019 mobilized over a million of people around the globe. A team of social scientists from universities across Europe organized a survey of the #FridaysForFuture strike events on March 15 in 13 cities in nine countries. The report can be found here. A new wave of climate protests (and surveys) is planned for the end of September.

Naturally, most participants at these protests are acutely aware of the environmental threats and motivated to take action. But what is the situation like among the general population?

Here is a quick summary with data from the European Values Study wave 5 (from the 2nd pre-release in July 2019), using the likert package.
