CAST Data Portal: Policy Dashboard

Ask a Question

  • This interactive dashboard displays data on the support for or opposition to the Paris Agreement, climate assemblies, and five potential climate policies. 
  • The data is separated into the four countries that were surveyed: Brazil, China, Sweden, and the UK. 
Teaching Tips


  • The data can be filtered by the respondents' gender, age, financial stability, environmental friendliness, and belief in collective efficacy.
  • The dashboard is well organized and easy to navigate.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Students should know how to read bar graphs.
  • Teachers may need to explain the filter terms financial stability, environmental identity, and collective efficacy. Definitions for these terms are provided underneath the graphic.


  • Math classes can use this resource to practice interpreting graphs and summarizing data.
  • In civics courses, students can further research the Paris Agreement, the concept of climate assemblies, and the various policies mentioned.
  • In science courses, students could assess how effective these policies could be at mitigating climate change.
  • Other resources about climate policy include this lesson plan on creating climate policies, this ClimateScience course on climate politics, and this video on carbon taxes.
Scientist Notes
The resource includes a study on how people perceive climate change in different nations, as well as the elements that influence how climate actions and policies are implemented to keep CO2 levels under control. This is an excellent teaching resource.
