The environment at the heart of Europeans concerns

The crisis in the European Union has somewhat sidelined the issue of the environment. And yet according to Eurobarometer, the majority of Europeans consider that environmental protection is a more important objective than improving economic competitiveness.

The explanations of Nando Pagnoncelli of Ipsos Italy: “It is quite true that today in Europe, there is a strong concern for development and for the recovery of the economy. But it is also true that, in the current phase of economic gloom, there is a strong demand for social protection. This translates into a demand for additional rights and a better quality of life. "

Greece, Slovenia and Poland… In these three countries, for more than 90% of those questioned, the environment is as important as economic and social policies. The European average is 85%, which is to say that it is a general concern.
