Environmental Issues Thought to be Most Pressing in Participants' Country or Region of Residence (Graphic: Business Wire)

  • Overall, participants rated "Climate Change" as the most pressing environmental issue in the country or region where they reside and expressed concern over abnormal weather conditions. The number two issue was "Society, Economy and Environment, Policies, Measures," and the number three issue was "Water Resources."
  • Participants rated Japan, the USA and Australia as the top three countries making progress in terms of public awareness and action on environmental issues. The reasons given for selecting Japan included "cutting-edge technology" and "cleanliness."
  • The Sustainable Development Goals that participants thought will have the highest level of realization by 2030 were "No Poverty" (1st), "Good Health and Wellbeing" (2nd), and "Zero Hunger" (3rd). The SDGs that participants thought would have the lowest level of realization were "No Poverty" (1st), "Zero Hunger" (2nd), and "Quality Education" (3rd). Opinions were split on whether poverty can be eradicated, even among people from the same country, with developed nations giving more pessimistic answers.
  • Around 30% of participants hadn't heard of the SDGs. 18-24-year-olds had a slightly higher awareness than 25-69-year-olds.
  • When showing environmental crisis awareness time on a clock, from 0:01 to 12:00, participants of all age brackets averaged out at 7:25, meaning "fairly concerned." 18-24-year-olds averaged out slightly lower at 7:11, while 25-69-year-olds were at 7:27, meaning they were slightly more concerned. The average time given by global environmental experts was two hours ahead of the general public, at 9:35, "extremely concerned." But both experts and the general public expressed a sense of crisis.
