Mission 1.5 & The Peoples’ Climate Vote

Peoples’ Climate Vote

With 1.2 million respondents, Mission 1.5’s “Peoples’ Climate Vote” is the largest survey of public opinion on climate change ever conducted.

Using a new and unconventional approach to polling, results span 50 countries covering 56% of the world’s population.

Poll questions were distributed through advertisements in mobile game apps, which resulted in a huge, unique, and random sample of people of all genders, ages, and educational backgrounds.
