COVID-19: Differential ethnic environmental behaviours and concerns - AQ0850

This report presents findings from analysis of survey data from the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformation (CAST) to explore whether respondents from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups experienced the COVID-19 lockdown differently to white respondents in regard to their environmental behaviours, attitudes and experiences.
The specific research objectives are to test whether there are meaningful differences in:

Environmental attitudes and behaviours between BAME and white respondents since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic;

Wellbeing and worry about COVID-19 between BAME and white respondents; and

Any change of environmental behaviours reported from before the pandemic to during the pandemic between BAME and white respondents.
