The consequences of climate change are increasingly evident around the world, however, efforts have been gathered to reverse this problem. Digital media has become essential in the daily lives of each individual and any information that circulates on the Internet today, whether on social networks or digital pages, reaches a very high level of propagation. Understanding the extent to which social networks and online information are essential for raising people's awareness of climate change is the main issue we focus on. In order to verify it, we conducted a study by questionnaire, developed by the literature review carried out on the subject. Among the proposed objectives, we also intend to check how digital media are used to support the reversal of climate change. We present here some of the results obtained in this study (N = 181), being expected as a result the rarely use of digital media to raise people's awareness of climate change, however, it is also expected that these media may have a fundamental role in reversing this problem.
