Participants were selected by proportional random sampling by sex and age the two Spanish communities with the most extreme values of water stress (Galicia, the rainiest region and Murcia, the dri...

Water scarcity is a major problem that affects a greater number of countries every year. A possible solution is using recycled water systems. However, to implement the use of recycled water, public acceptance is needed. In this study, we propose a perceptive-axiological model (PAM) to understand the reasons for public acceptance or rejection of rec...

Existe la creencia de que los más jóvenes y los norteuropeos están más concienciados con el medio ambiente que sus mayores y los países del sur, pero algunas encuestas la desmienten. Este artículo fue publicado originalmente en The Conversation y está disponible en: https://theconversation.com/son-los-jovenes-y-los-ciudadanos-del-norte-de-europa-...

According to a report by the World Economic Forum, the water crisis is the fourth most serious global risk to society. The apparent limitations of the hydraulic paradigm to solving this crisis are leading to a change in water management approaches. Recently, decentralized wastewater treatment systems have re-emerged as a partial solution to this pr...

A random sample of 459 participants was employed, selected proportionally based on sex and age. In this sample, knowledge on the water-related issues tended to be low, particularly related to the direct so...

In doing so, this study compares millennials in North and South Europe with members of Generation X in three environmental dimensions: attitudes, personal norms, and behavior. Using data from the Euro...

There is a growing interest in decentralized wastewater treatment systems, especially in regions with water scarcity problems or water management issues. This study aims to determine whether the perceived advantages and disadvantages (leading to acceptance) of decentralized wastewater plants in such regions are the same in regions where the populat...

Current predictive models of collective action have devoted little attention to personal values, such as morals or ideology. The present research addresses this issue by incorporating a new axiological path in a novel predictive model of collective action, named AICAM. The axiological path is formed by two constructs: ideology and moral obligation....

In times of crisis, political mobilizations increase. Many of them compete to impose a determined diagnosis of the situation. This work analyses this issue, taking into consideration two of the movements that have had a greater incidence during the crisis in Spain: The Catalonian National Assembly and the Marches for dignity. The objective is to kn...
Article
The recent economic crisis shaped a new wave of protest in Europe mobilising thousands of people. Austerity measures brought not only the ‘usual suspects’ onto the streets, they also awoke less frequent demonstrators. What brought all these people to the streets? Are their motivations the same for participation in all demonstrations? We compare par...

In this work we look into the individuals' reasons that led Occupy protesters to participate in this movement. We interviewed Occupy participants in the UK and Spain. We wanted to find out if the reasons that lead them to participate are the same in both countries. The context of the country where the demonstration was held was taken into account,...

The national elections held in November 2011 in Spain were a good opportunity to see how the indignados movement made its mark on representative politics. With youth unemployment above 40% at that time, and with the echoes of the occupation of central urban spaces like the Puerta del Sol in Madrid in May that year still resounding, the social wave...

The objective of this study is to ascertain how political context and participants’ union membership affect the motivation to participate in a protest. The study compares participants of two demonstrations in Spain on different dates, organized by the same trade unions, with the same objectives (opposition to a new labor law). The design of the stu...

"En este trabajo queremos estudiar hasta qué punto el contexto influye en las variables explicativas que determinan la participación en la protesta. En concreto, comprobamos si los motivos expresivos e instrumentales, la eficacia, la ira y la identidad tienen el mismo peso explicativo sobre la participación política en diferentes contextos. Para e...
