Wanted: respondents for online survey on (online/legal) intimidation against those speaking out and/or taking action on environmental issues

(22-12-2022) The survey aims to gain insight into the use of (online/legal) intimidation practices against those speaking out and/or taking action on environmental issues, which will be used to develop recommendations for (non-)legislative action.

Participants will be asked to complete an online survey (see link) with a number of questions, which will take about 15 to 20 minutes. The results of this survey will enable me to identify the intimidation tactics used, understand their effect on those at whom they are directed, raise awareness of this problem and provide the basis for recommendations for legislative and non-legislative action to address such forms of intimidation. Your answers will be kept confidential. The survey does not collect identifying information such as your name, e-mail address or IP address. At the end of the survey, you can leave your contact details in case you wish to receive more information and/or are interested in participating in our future focus groups on the same topic. In any case, this data is stored separately from the answers you provided in the course of the survey. Your name will not be used in publications of the results of this survey.

  • Doelgroep: I am looking for participants (18 years or older, and working/living in Belgium) who participate or are involved in the climate and environmental debate in various ways, including various forms of speaking and taking action, both offline and online. This includes, but is not limited to, attending climate demonstrations, doing research and/or engaging online by liking/sharing/creating online content.
