The Climate of the Nation charts the attitudes of Australians to climate change, its impacts, the science, potential responses, the opportunities it presents and the performance of our leaders in relation to it.

The Climate Institute conducted the Climate of the Nation attitudinal research for more than a decade, between 2007 and 2017, making it the longest continuous survey of community attitudes in the country. When The Australia Institute took on The Climate Institute’s intellectual property, it took on responsibility for the Climate of the Nation as well as part of its new Climate & Energy Program.
