Climate and Health Survey

Our survey is currently CLOSED. Thank you to those who completed this survey.  

About the project
This survey is part of a research project by enliven Victoria and Victoria University. This survey will help to increase understanding of the types of knowledge and awareness of climate change and its link to human health in South East Melbourne. Responses from this survey will help local organisations plan and respond better to health impacts of climate change in our community.

This survey includes questions about your awareness, values, attitudes and behaviours toward climate change and health. It also includes some demographic questions about you and how you live. Your individual responses will not be shared. All your responses and identity will be anonymous. This means no one will know it was you who completed the survey. If you have any questions, please email

The project focuses on two key research questions:  

    1. What is the range of knowledge, awareness, values, attitudes and behaviours of the interrelationship between climate change and health within communities in South East Melbourne?
    2. What cohorts of the community in South East Melbourne have the most limited knowledge, understanding and capacity surrounding climate change and health, and what the barriers and facilitators to action among these cohorts?  

Project outcomes

  • Increasing the capacity of health and community organisations to understand and monitor current levels of understanding of climate change and health among their community as well as associated barriers towards action 
  • The development of a detailed plan to co-design a communications toolkit for local community and health services to address and respond to diverse understandings of climate change and health within the South East Melbourne community 
  • Increasing community knowledge and understanding about the links between climate change and human health.
