The CANADA-EUROPE TRANSATLANTIC DIALOGUE is hosting an international workshop PUBLIC ATTITUDES AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY IN CANADA AND EUROPE at Carleton University, Ottawa.  The workshop highlights findings by leading Canadian and European scholars from recent comparative public opinion research, as well as the environment as an issue in recent elections and referenda.  Public opinion findings are drawn from the recently released International Social Survey Program (ISSP)  2010 Environment Survey, in which 32 countries participated.  Because the ISSP conducted similar surveys on the environment in 1993 and 2000, these data offer unique possibilities for comparing trends in environmental public opinion in Canada and the European Union.
