Are you worried about climate change? 

A survey from Karolinska Institutet (Sweden)

Climate change is a concern for many of us. When watching the news, seeing posts on social media or experiencing climate change in our daily lives, we can feel a number of different emotions, such as worry, anxiety, sadness, depression, frustration or anger.

Some of these emotions are helpful and motivate us to take action. Other emotions are less helpful and, instead, may make us feel paralyzed, helpless or overwhelmed.

This study is about the latter type of emotions, the climate worry that makes you feel paralyzed, helpless, or overwhelmed, also known as unhelpful climate worry.

The survey is part of a new research initiative at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden with a focus on climate worry and sustainable behavior change. 

It takes about 15 minutes to respond to the survey. Participation is completely anonymous. We will not ask for your name or other personal information. Thus, it will not be possible to link your answers to you as a person.

The responsible researcher is Fabian Lenhard, PhD, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet (fabian.lenhard@ki.se). To proceed to the survey, please give your consent below.

I am 18 years or older and agree to my anonymous answers being collected and shared with researchers at Karolinska Institutet.
