This article analyzes changes and determinants of environmental actions in the Austrian population since 1994/ 95. Two different types of action are being considered here. First, private actions, such as no longer driving a car and recycling, and, second, public actions such as taking part in demonstrations or signing petitions. Using representative survey data, a decline in public actions can be reported while private actions have remained relatively stable. Further, public actions are being influenced strongly by values and attitudes, but to a lesser extent by social structural factors. Private actions, on the other hand, are more often determined by social structural factors such as age, gender, and economic activity.
