Young people's vision of a sustainable future.
Britain’s youth say yes to a sustainable Britain as long as it comes with steak on the side – shows new research by Global Action Plan and YouGov.
Young people's vision for a sustainable future
In the first initiative of its kind, Global Action Plan invited its Greenprint volunteers to describe their vision for a sustainable Britain in 2020. Global Action Plan then asked YouGov to question a further 1,053 16-25 year olds for their views which have been collaborated to create a forward thinking vision of an achievable low carbon world.
The vision is split into 5 areas: Home and Life, Learning and Work, Power, Food and Travel.

89% of young people surveyed stated that they would like to see people living more sustainably in 2020…
