What vulnerable people have to say
Focus group research in the Fair Energy Transition for All (FETA) project has involved more than 900 Europeans in nine countries over the past year. This report summarizes the key findings.
Europeans with very limited financial means have little doubt about the dangers of climate change and believe in the need to tackle it. But few feel that they themselves can or should respond. It is for governments, business, and the wealthy, with larger carbon footprints, to find fair solutions, most believe. Many disadvantaged Europeans are, however, trying to cut their energy consumption, though more from motives of economy than ecology.
Backed by six leading philanthropic institutions, FETA will use this input to recommend EU and national policies that can secure support across society and, notably, avoid placing a burden on the most vulnerable that would fuel opposition to efforts to protect the planet.
