Media Effect on Attitudes towards Climate Change


Participants of the Survey

There will be three sets of participants, which will be divided into two groups: one will be a mix of age, gender and occupation, and the other will be a group of geography students. The first group will be asked about their perception about the effect of media on their attitudes towards climate change and what they think can be done to increase the role of media. The second group will be asked about their level of understanding of climate change by being a geography student, their perception about the influence of media on attitude towards climate change and how they can communicate the reality of climate change to a lay person. The questionnaires for mix group and geography students are given below.
