Green European : Environmental Behaviour and Attitudes in Europe in a Historical and Cross-Cultural
about this item
Green European addresses the quest for a better understanding of European type(s) of environmentalism. This monograph focuses i on public attitudes and behaviours and the culturally rooted as well as country specific differences. The book addresses the wider l issue that many European countries are rendered ‘green’ or as having an advanced environmental awareness, but the question - ‘how green are Green Europeans really’, is yet to be answered.
The book covers a variety of unique data-driven comparative studies and is divided into three parts:
- the first addresses perceptions of environmental and technological threats and risks,
- the second part deals with environmental activism in Europe,
- the third discusses environmental attitudes, environmental concerns and their imminent link to personal pro-environmental behaviour.
The empirical comparative nature of the contributions is enabled by data from the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP).
