Climate change significantly impacts safety, health, and the workplace environment, primarily through rising temperatures and increased heat exposure. This research explored public opinion on climate change within the Fifth Congressional District of Cebu, Philippines, focusing on seven municipalities: Borbon, Sogod, Catmon, Carmen, Danao, Compostela, and Liloan. The research examined a possible discrepancy between residents' knowledge of climate change and their corresponding efforts to address it, aiming primarily to assess beliefs regarding climate change. The study used a survey questionnaire developed by Tarik Abdel-Monem et al. to understand how residents perceive and respond to climate change and employ a four-point Likert Scale as a scoring procedure. The residents in District Five expressed high concern about climate change towards the family, which was all about human activity, specifically the burning of fossil fuels. The mitigating actions were turning off lights and appliances and using public transportation. This collective effort mitigates climate change effects where policy interventions and a close call to nature through organizational and government communications come in hand.
