Results from the first-ever global citizen consultation on climate change are clear: Citizens from all parts of the world mandate their politicians to take fast and strong action at COP15.
The WWViews results are based on well-established principles for citizen participation, and offer a unique and detailed insight into ordinary peopleâ€™s views on climate change and how to make global policies to deal with it. The 4,000 participating citizens from 38 countries were chosen to reflect the demographic diversity in their respective countries and regions. They were provided with unbiased information about climate change and the COP15 negotiations, and they were given time to deliberate with fellow citizens.
The results are remarkably consistent across national income groups and geographical regions. The participating citizens voted on alternative answers to 12 predefined questions and produced a large number of recommendations phrased in their own wordings.
