Small Steps Toward a Healthy Climate

In Spring 2021, the Old South Church Climate Crisis Task Force asked its congregation: what changes have you made in your personal life to combat the climate crisis? Below are graphs and tables detailing the results of the survey, followed by a list of other actions respondents reported taking that were not captured in the multiple-choice portion of the survey. Our hope is to spark new thinking about actions individuals can take that make sense in their particular context.

Please note that in the graphs below, the bars without a label represent respondents who did not complete the question. Those respondents are not represented in the table; rows may thus not add to 100%.
