Part of the CVVM October survey were questions about Czech citizens relation to the place where they live. All respondents were asked about their relationship to their village, to their city, to the region in which they live, to the Czech Republic and to the Europe.
In October survey CVVM dealt with the currently very discussed topic, which is climate change on Earth. We were interested in what the Czech public thinks about this topic. Specifically, we investigated whether Czech citizens are interested in the issue of climate change, whether they believe that climate change on Earth is occuring at all, and why this change is caused, whether they feel personal responsibility for climate change and whether they think they can contribute to climate change mitigation. One of the questions also concerned the opinion of respondents on the probability of introducing early arrangements to mitigate climate change in sufficient number of countries. At the end, we were interested in whether respondents fear the impacts of climate change and whether, according to them, climate change will have any impact on the Czech Republic.
Citizens' attitudes related to the Czech history were surveyd by the Public Opinion Research Centre in October 2019. First, we asked who is regarded as the greatest Czech personality and also which of the selected historical periods is regarded as the greatest one. Similarly, in connection with the 20th century respondents named the three most important events since the end of World War I.
In October survey CVVM asked all respondents several questions concerning their opinion on climate strikes, the so-called Fridays for Future, which is also the name of movement under whose heading these protests are taking place. It is an international movement of pupils and students who decided to take part in demonstrations instead of Friday school classes, appealing to politicians to take resolute actions against global warming and other climate changes. In the research, we surveyed respondents on these strikes, whether they know what they mean, whether they endorse them, whether they think it is right that young people to strike instead of school classes, or what they think about the success of these climate strikes.
