5. Climate Activism

5.1. Majorities in most countries and territories are willing to participate in a citizens’ campaign to reduce climate change.

Substantial numbers of respondents in every country or territory, including majorities in 19 countries and territories surveyed, say they “definitely” or “probably” would participate, or currently are participating, in a citizens’ campaign to convince leaders to take action to reduce climate change. Respondents in Mexico (79%) and Colombia (79%) are the most likely to say they are currently participating, “definitely would” participate, or “probably would” participate in a citizens’ campaign. Respondents from the Netherlands (29%) and Japan (29%) are the least likely to say they are participating or would participate in a such a campaign. In the United States, 5% of respondents say they are already participating in a citizens’ campaign urging action to reduce climate change, and an additional 38% say that they “definitely” or “probably” would do so.
