People have a diverse opinion, Gurb’s industrial futur is very untrue and people have demonstrated it by answering the following questions.
People think that in 2050 there will be a clear majority of nutritional factories, with an improvement in order to make them more automatic, with a drop of workers, bout with more machines doing tasks faster and more efficiently, this provokes a considerable improvement of production and efficiency. People show us, with the result in the survey, that, because of the industrial growth, primary sector will disappear. Climate change will affect negatively the village and, due to this, primary sector will start disappearing.
Most people who answered the survey is from Gurb and Vic, with a 55,8%. Many people work in Gurb and Vic, with a 31,7% in Vic and a 26% in Gurb, the rest are distributed in other villages from Osona, but their certain percentage is really low. But there’s also a 13,5% of people who haven’t worked yet. They mostly work as administrators and study, these occupations give us a 46,2%.
Citizenship is quite aware of environment, a 57,7% of people is rather active with environment. Just a few people participate in a passive way with environment. To help environment they mainly recycle with a 45,2%. Nowadays, this certain percentage is great, but thinking ahead we should improve and there should be more people who participate more actively. People who do nothing occupy a little part, a 3,8%. We wanted to how much people knew about Gurb and a 37,5% thinks that the first industry which was set up in Gurb was between 1850 and 1900. But that’s incorrect, because the first energy source was the factory of yarns called “Malars”, founded in 1827. That answer occupies a 16,3%. People weren’t that misguided though. We asked if someone knew and a 76% said no. The certain percentage of people who got it right was a 9,6%.
The final results in the following surveys give us a conclusion very important about what people opine: Industries are a big problem for Gurb, because they are growing too fast, without control and, as we can see in the graphs, the population is worried about these occurrences which can put in danger people’s life and the village’s aesthetics. So a 56,87% of the votes think that there must be a higher aportation of renewable energies from factories and an influential bet for these. To sum up, people is mainly worried about pollution.
