Policy makers are increasingly aware of the adverse effects climate change and environmental degradation have for our coasts and oceans. However, decision-making on the actions to take may be influenced by public opinion. Whilst climate change has been subject to increasing international attention, there has been less focus on how informed the public are about climate change impacts and solutions in marine and coastal systems.
In the scope of the MaCoBioS research project (funded under EU Horizon 2020 grant agreement No 869710), Dr. Gema Casal, Senior Postdoctoral Researcher from the National Centre for Geocomputation in the Maynooth University would like to invite you to take part in this survey.
The survey aims to better understand public perceptions about how climate change may affect the sustainable management of marine and coastal resources. The results will inform our work on developing clear policy advice on how to manage resilient marine and coastal ecosystems.
This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. It is composed of 20 questions across four sections.
Your voice is important and we appreciate you taking the time to complete our survey.
