6 young people out of 10 view climate change as an opportunity
Scenario 2015: a study conducted in 12 countries surveying 6,000 young people between the ages of 18 and 29 carried out by Nomadeis, a sustainable development consulting firm in conjunction with AXA and Nielsen, with further support from Mazars and Saint-Gobain.
- Almost all those surveyed (94%) agreed that there has been noticeable environmental degradation over the past 20 years.
- A large majority of respondents (84%) are still convinced that combining economic development with environmental protection is possible.
- A large majority (85%) also believes that job markets will change due to climate change but almost half of the respondents (46%) felt that their education has not sufficiently prepared them for these changes.
- A majority of the young people we polled (83%) believes that the changes will lead to the creation of new jobs rather than the elimination of existing positions (59%).
