Behind the issue of environmental protection and climate change, the workers for a long time only a minority of people in Switzerland, but is now experiencing a Revival follows.
After the interest in the Umwelthematik between the years of 2000 and 2016 it has almost halved, increasing it since then strong again. Last year, the theme returned again for the first time in the Top 5 of the greatest Concerns. This year it has increased – driven by the media present the debate around climate change – again, and is new with 29 percent in the fourth place of the ranking list.
Easily, the fear of unemployment that is 26 percent to rank five has increased. However, the long-term development speaks a different language: Since 2010, the Problem has lost almost continuously in importance. About three-quarters of the Swiss observed at the time, the situation on the labour market with concern, there is still a good quarter. The much-discussed fear of a soon-to-be loss of jobs due to the digitisation has not been determined.
other issues have lost their urgency. Refugees and the Asylum system no longer employ the people so strong. The banking crisis seems to be even quite forgotten, and is no longer even in the Top 20 of the rankings represented.

in addition to this perceived management lack of Executive power, many complain about a General reform of the jam. The result is a significant loss of confidence in almost all Swiss institutions.
have The most confidence lost compared to the previous year, the churches, followed by the EU and the economy, which has been lost in recent years, a lot of credit. 41 percent of respondents found the economy to fail, often at crucial things. A majority calling for more freedom and less bureaucracy.
In the media and the policy in trust, the voting citizens, citizens voting also much less than a few years ago. Especially the Image of political parties has arg suffered. More than three-quarters of the respondents see the "declining ability of the policy to provide viable solutions," even as the biggest threat to the Swiss identity.

Otherwise, the trust of Switzerland could break nationals in the institutions.
