The biennial survey on the state of environmental awareness and behavior, which has been conducted since 1996, is currently being projected and implemented by ISInova. In addition to assessments of environmental problems and information about environmental behavior, we are interested in how environment-related problems lead to innovative changes in behavior, understanding these problems as opportunities for changing everyday routines.
The survey was conducted throughout Germany in 2012 as a representative survey. The project is carried out in cooperation with the Philipps University of Marburg.
