Explore Your EcoTypes
Go Deeper into Environmental Issues
The EcoTypes survey is free and anonymous, and you’ll immediately receive a visual report summarizing your environmental ideas and comparing them with others who have taken the survey.
Go deeper, by exploring a wide range of ideas that affect how you and others approach environmental issues.
Want a quick overview of EcoTypes?
EcoTypes involves three successive ingredients: axes, themes, and finally EcoTypes. This video, produced by Lewis & Clark College student Liv Ladaire, offers a quick introduction, or see our FAQ page.
Axes are the fundamental ideas of EcoTypes. Examples of the 15 axes include Aesthetics, Diversity, Ecosystems, Nature, Science, and Time. Some may strike you as surprising!…but all are relevant to how we approach environmental issues.
Themes are statistical combinations of axes that address a common big question and embody a key tension in how we approach environmental issues. The three themes are Place, Knowledge, and Action.
EcoTypes are statistical patterns in theme scores among over 2500 people who completed the survey. There are five EcoTypes, with suggestive names such as Small is Beautiful, Ecoscience, and Indigenous Justice.
