Available online: https://pub.norden.org/nord2020-035/ Abstract [en]: Almost 5,000 Nordic citizens have answered a wide range of questions relating to Nordic co-operation, climate change and democratic engagement. The results show that Nordic citizens are concerned about the trends and believe that climate change and the environment is the most important area of co-operation for the Nordic region. There is also a lot of variation in what citizens think the best measures are and in the extent to which they believe that politicians can solve the climate crisis. The report highlights both challenges and opportunities for the Nordic democracies in their work for the climate and environment of the future

Based on the reforms that a green transition will require, it has been recognised that the Nordic societies and their populations must prepare for significant changes. This report provides insight into how the issue of climate change in particular is perceived in the Nordic region. It is based on a telephone survey that was conducted of almost 5,000 citizens of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and of the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.
