Its citizens' ecological illiteracy is a clear reflection of the low priority of environmental issues in the state policy. According to the analytic report
initiated by the International Renaissance Foundation (IRF), over 90% of Ukrainian citizens have no experience in protecting their ecological rights. They are not aware of their content.
In various surveys
, Ukrainians note the importance of environmental problem-solving. However, in everyday life, they show ecological skills regarding economic benefits (water saving, decrease in electricity consumption).
The environmental protection issue in Ukraine needs more comprehensive governance, inter-agencies cooperation, and institutionalization of ecological interests. Project objectives:
- Reveal essential public stereotypes on environmental problems;
- Define the fundamental needs and interests of businesses;
- Analyze the representation and quality of media coverage on ecological issues;
- Collect insights for establishing and implementing the one-voice policy in the environmental field and start a broad public discussion on this issue.
