Citizen Engagement on the Environment
This study aims to improve Defra’s understanding of people’s values and priorities for the environment and will generate options for taking these into account in environmental policymaking.
Our work has produced a range of outputs concerned with citizen engagement with environmental policy making, including:
- A Scoping Review
- Research Briefing & Final Report
- Practice Guide
- Project Evaluation
Our research gives insight into public attitudes and values that will in the short term inform the current refresh of the 25YEP and highlights the benefits of direct engagement with citizens in navigating the challenges of implementing the 25 Year Environment Plan. The final report details the public’s priorities for the environment, as well as their future visions and what role government and other actors should play in getting there.
