The purpose of the Discussions and Actions on Climate and Environment (DACE) project, co-financed by the European Union, is to shape public attitudes and to enforce mitigation of the climate crises and enhance related rights in court. Within the framework of the DACE project, we conducted a survey among the Hungarian population on their attitudes related to the impacts of the climate crisis and their awareness of the legal instruments for mitigating these impacts.
The completed questionnaires show that our sample, consisting of 60 % of women (who react more sensitively to environmental problems), and 75 % of Hungarian residents with a higher education (university or college) degree, are quite sensitive to the climate crisis and are aware of its impacts on their daily lives. In addition, they claim to know those legal instruments that could be used to mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis, but they would rather not use these legal instruments on their own. Instead, they would support civil society organizations to act in the fight against the curtailment of their rights caused by the climate crisis.
