Learn more about the vote

The Peoples’ Climate Vote is the world’s biggest standalone public opinion poll on climate change. It serves as a platform for people to express their concerns and needs on climate change to world leaders.

The Peoples’ Climate Vote 2024 is the second edition of the survey, carried out by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the University of Oxford. The first Peoples’ Climate Vote took place in 2021, and used mobile gaming adverts to survey 1.2 million people across 50 countries. The 2024 survey is bigger in terms of countries: people in 77 countries, representing 87% of the world’s population, were asked their views on climate change.

The 15 questions in the survey have never been put to people in any survey before. They asked how people’s day-to-day lives are impacted by climate change, how they feel it is being addressed in their countries, and what they would like the world to do about it. The results give the most comprehensive public account yet of how people feel about and respond to climate change.

The Peoples’ Climate Vote 2024 results come at a challenging time. Global emissions are still rising and scientists are reporting climate change is happening faster than their models are predicting. At the same time, the world is facing crises on multiple fronts, from conflicts to rising inequalities. With more than half of the world’s population potentially voting in 2024, understanding how citizens are thinking about climate change is more important than ever. The survey’s results can help decision makers navigate this challenging context, and beyond.
