Take part in our study

Thank you very much for your willingness to participate in our study of how people generally perceive and use urban green spaces, and changes in use patterns due to the COVID-19 situation. The results of this study will contribute to the design of urban green spaces to satisfy the needs of all urban citizens.

Please consider the following when answering the questions:

Your participation and reply to individual questions is voluntary - we treat all answers confidentially. We only analyse the average values of a larger group of people, not individual cases.

There are no right or wrong answers. We are interested in your personal opinion.

If possible, please answer all questions, even if the given option do not always seem fully appropriate.

Answer spontaneously and without giving too much thought.

 

Answering the survey will require about 15 minutes. 

Have fun!
