18% of French people have already taken part in a major public event (march, gathering, etc.) against poverty and in support for international development.
Left-wing sympathizers (28%) and French people aged 18 to 34 ( 26%) are the most likely to get involved in this way.
Overall, bringing people out onto the street or into any other physical public space does not seem to be the most effective way to increase awareness and engagement amongst French people.
This data comes from our survey conducted by the YouGov Institute and piloted by the research team at University College London and Birmingham University as part of the project Aid Attitudes Tracker which measures the evolution of opinions and behaviors on issues of international solidarity in four countries.
