Green European addresses the quest for a better understanding of European type(s) of environmentalism. This monograph focuses on public attitudes and behaviours and the culturally rooted as well as country specific differences. The book addresses the wider issue that many European countries are rendered ‘green’ or as having an advanced environmental awareness, but the question - ‘how green are Green Europeans really’, is yet to be answered.

The book covers a variety of unique data-driven comparative studies and is divided into three parts:

  • the first addresses perceptions of environmental and technological threats and risks,
  • the second part deals with environmental activism in Europe,
  • the third discusses environmental attitudes, environmental concerns and their imminent link to personal pro-environmental behaviour.

The empirical comparative nature of the contributions is enabled by data from the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP).
