This research was carried out among over 33,000 people in 30 countries in 2023 to learn more about how people think, feel, and act in relation to people (inequality, community, human rights) and planet (climate, consumption, circular). GlobeScan and Ingka Group have been monitoring how these attitudes and actions have evolved over time through similar research conducted in 2017, 2019, and 2021.
